By train from Barcelona to Perpignan

by LouisKirstein

We are four friends that have to travel byt train from Barcelona to Perpignan on Sunday 20 September. Are there any trains and what time do they leave for Perpignan? We don't mind the slower trains as we will be staying in Perpignan for another week. And what are the costs?

The spanish rail, www.renfe.es will go from Barcelona to Perpignan. Looks like the Talgo to Montpellier, leaving around 16:40.

Takes 3-4 hrs depending on whether or not you have to change in Cerbère. You can check convenient timetable on http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en.
However for costs you would have to check on the RENFE site.

hmmm ... the one train route I saw went all the way to Montpelier without changing trains.

Much cheaper will be to use regional train to Port Bou/Cerebere and change there for Perpignan.
Talgo to Montpellier has old cars and not that fast to prefer it instead...

Another option is the excellent long distance bus service. Here is one example: [Alsa|http://www.alsa.es/portal/site/Alsa/], but there are other companies. Check the bus stations at Sants or Nord. This bus takes about 3hrs 45 min. I don't know the price but if you follow the ticket purchase on the website you can see it. You an also buy your tickets at the bus station a day or two ahead; the same day if you are flexible. In some cases, these buses are faster than the trains, cheaper, and more comfortable. Let me know if you want more info.

Travel Tips for Barcelona

Renting a Car for Two People¿

by listenandlearn

Here is an ideal car to rent if you wish to drive in the city. The cost vary from season to season, although through the use of internet you can easily book for the cost ranging from 60 euros per day. This vehicle which everyone calls SMART is the funnest car we had rented to drive around the city, instead of renting a mopad, we rented this vehicle called "SMART". Quite an ideal to rent for couple of days instead of walking around the city miles to see Barcelona.

Catalan, Castellano, and English

by jhoolko

Catalan is the official language of Barcelona, so don't be surprised when your Spanish (Castellano) knowledge seems to fail you when overhearing conversation or reading street signs. Most places will also have a Castellano translations, and major signs and notices, such as the metro system, also have it written in English. If you only speak English, you will be able to get by in the main parts of the city because of the overwhelming presence of tourists there. If you venture outside this center into areas such as Gracia, chances are you might run into a number of non-English speaking people. Castellano is understood and spoken by almost everyone in Barcelona, and it is not out of the ordinary to hear it spoken on the street. It is HIHGLY BENEFICIAL to have a knowledge of Castellano. You will be able to communicate effectively with nearly everyone if you can speak it. The only time I ran into problems is when really old ladies would start talking to me on the metro or the street, and sometimes I had to explain to them why I didn't speak Catalan. But even then I could do it in Castellano. Linguistic effort is generally appreciated, as it always is, in Barcelona, and it is good to know some key phrases and to try to use them when you can. 'Jo no parlo catala' will suffice if you need to alert someone that you don't speak Catalan, and 'No hablo espanol/castellano' for Castellano. I don't think I ever had to use the former, because honestly, most people can tell the natives from the tourists and visitors, plus, they speak Castellano. Don't worry if you speak only Castellano and you are approaching someone to speak, becuase they will generally speak to people who look foreign or from out of town in Castellano without even trying Catalan. Most places also have menus in other languages, sometimes upon request. I also found that having some basic knowledge of French vocabulary helped me read a lot of signs and understand some other things a bit.

Appropriate Bags

by clairegeordio

Good to bring a bag that goes across the shoulder for extra safety, or many people had rucksacks worn at the front. Personally, I had no bother, but best to wear bags like this if you want to feel safer as there are supposedly many pickpockets about.

Macedonian wedding band

by zizkov

Actually not of the beaten path at all, but no guarantee you will see this...

My apologies to them if they come from another part of the Balkans, but on a February afternoon, outside El Corte Ingles music store, an excellent band busking. About nine of them, so I'm guessing no-one would be getting rich doing this, but quality.

St. Josep mercat

by ostia about La Boqueria / Markets

St Josep market offers all sort of local and internacional thing to buy. Quite dark place but such an experience! Smoked ham and sausages.
Fruits and vegetables.
Spices.
Sweet, dried fruits.
