Minibuses at Barcelona airport ?

by ILEENE

Hi there,
Can one take a minibus for 5 people at the airport? I understand that regular taxis will take 4 people.
Is there a desk or so to arrange/request this at the aiport? We need transportation to the city/hotel.
many thanks,
Ileene

Another option is the train which we found to be very cheap easy. The train terminates next to the airport and there is usually one waiting at the platform. It obviously depends on time of day, where you are staying and how much luggage you have. We were staying close to Place de Catalunya so it suited us.

Just a thought.

Was just there. Follow the signs to "taxi", as soon as you go out the door there will be a person directing passengers to each cab. Tell them your needs and they will cAll up a mini van for you.

I had forgotten to get euros, they cAlled up a cab that took a credit card on the spot.

Thanks, knowing my family they will have loads of luggage and we're arriving around 8pm, guess taxi (or minibus) may be better.

Travel Tips for Barcelona

Miro's Dona i Ocell (Woman and Bird) sculpture

by nancyread

The Miro sculpture "Dona i Ocell" [Woman and Bird] doesn't really fall into either the "Must See" or "Tourist Trap" categories - that is why I have put it here in the "General Tip" section.

Frankly, the sculpture itself is a bit of a disappointment. On the other hand, if you happen to be near the Placa Espanya underground station (Montjuic), it only involves going a couple of hundred yards out of your way.

Location: parc d'escorxador at the junction of Carrer Tarragona [which links Placa Espanya with Placa de Sants] and Carrer d'Arago.

It stands 22 metres (66 feet) high and was commissioned as part of Barcelona's 1983 public art initiative. An abstract sculpture, typical of Miro's work, it was considered frightfully daring in its day (at least by the locals, who were probably still reeling from the abortive coup d'etat a year earlier in 1982). Now it all seems rather tame. The concrete column is clad with broken coloured ceramic tiles (the work of Joan Artigas) to achieve a rough mosaic effect. The same technique - trencadis - is commonly found in Gaudi's architecture and interiors.

To be honest, it would be much more in keeping with its setting if it were sited near the Miro Foundation. Instead, it is located in a rather featureless park with an ill-omened name - parc d'escorxador - [Slaughterhouse Park - for this is where thousands of animals met their maker]. The sculpture looks a little sad and out of place. To sum up, "take a butcher's"* [take a look] if you are in the neighbourhood but otherwise "give it the bird"* [give it a miss].

* Cockney slang.

Unfinished Architecture

by nicolettart

Definitely one of my favorite things in Barcelona! Yes, you've heard it called Gaudi's unfinished masterpiece. It is unbelievable! Of, course you must climb to the top to see all the strange gargoyles along the way. See my must-see tips for more pics!

I found it very useful to...

by vince32

I found it very useful to throw in a few key phrases in Catalan. In my case, because I kept bumping into people, I learnt how to apologise in Catalan, which is 'Ho Siento'. I think that is how it is spelt! And also to forget for a few minutes that you are a 'Brit abroad' and just be very repectful to the locals and they will be very respectful back!

Frederic Mares Museum - well worth seeing

by andrewmarkworthy

Although it's not really off the beaten track (the museum is listed in all the guidebooks and is in one of the most tourist-heavy areas of the city) practically nobody seems to go there. We literally had the place to ourselves - all four floors of it. For those who don't know what the place is, Frederic Mares was a sculptor who collected things - LOTS of things. Scores of mediaeval crucifixes, holy water holders, playing cards, sewing machines, bicycles, fans, wax fruit, medals, paintings, sculptures ... The list goes on and on. And the museum contains all that he collected over a very long life. The museum is far from small. One floor alone would be impressive. What is appealing is not the individual items (to be honest, there are few individual things worth getting excited about) - it's the effect of walking from room to room and realising that one person assembled all of it. It's practically impossible to describe the effect - just go and visit the place. And as a treat, there is a very pleasant cafe next door with a delightful courtyard garden.

Graffiti

by Rude_boy22

Of all my travels, Barcelona gets the award for best Graffiti. While most big cities' graff consists of some idiot's gang tag, or something to the effect of 'EMINEM RULZ', Barcelona has some really good, creative work being done. I met a guy from Paris who came down just to paint this wall, which is famous among graff circles. He let me watch him at work. I did not take pictures of the act for obvious reasons.
