Are dogs welcome in Barcelona?

by GoodDaySunshine

I'm planning a trip with my pup to Barcelona. ANy fun activities I could do with him? Does anyone know whether the city is dog-friendly? I know dogs aren't allowed on the beaches. Thanks!

Wow that's a hell of a long trip for a pup. First class air travel for him I hope?

Every second person in Spain seems to be trailing some sort of little perrito around, so I dont think you'll meet too many problems. Although I've never researched the subject as ours stay at home!

In my opinion, Barcelona is a pet friendly city, particularly the sidewalk patio cafes. The problem is that there are not so many green spaces to let them run. You'll have to double check your hotel though since I found those hit or miss.

Re: Are dogs welcome in Barcelona?

Yes, good advice from the previous posters.

Do remember that you are required, by law, to clear up after your dog!

And do check the legal requirements for bringing your dog into Spain:

Thanks for all the information! The hotel is dog-friendly and I'm making sure he's going to be a happy little pooch the whole flight there. If you have any other advice, let me know.

Travel Tips for Barcelona

carrying money

by rkearns

i always bring a purse and just carry it as if i were in my own city. i also divide my things into different bags so if something is stolen, it's not everything. if you have to leave your things at the hostel, invest in a good lock and keep your things in the locker provided. but a safety deposit box is also a good idea. the american embassy has to replace your passport within 24 hours if lost or stolen, btw.

Views from the Tibidabo

by SirRichard

When I went up the Tibidabo Hill it was cloudy and raining, so I couldn't see really much of the magnificient view of the city you can admire on clear days.
Anyway, it was not bad, so I took this picture, better than nothing, isn't it?

To get here, take the Blue Tram at John Kennedy Sq. (Avinguda del Tibidabo FG Stop)

Perspective on painting the town red

by Pounder73

I am sure you’ve heard this before, but if not, here you go. The Spaniards DO NOT start the night early. If you are going out pub hopping or out to a club, and are planning to have dinner beforehand, have your dinner at about 11pm.

For example: the night I went to Poble Espanyol to hear a top ranked international DJ, the flier said it started at midnight. (I’ve seen this DJ in California a few times, and one time I had to get to the club at about 7:30 pm, when he wasn’t performing until 1am.) In worrying that I wasn’t going to get in, if I arrived at midnight, I showed up around 10:30. The only other people that were there as well, were from the US, England, and Canada. They all had the same fears. Well, 12-o-clock rolled around, and still, were the only ones there. Poble Espanyol didn’t open up till about 12:30, and the club didn’t get crowded till after 2am. I left about 6:30 am, and the place was still jumping!

Bitlles Catalanes

by easyoar

This is a Catalan derivation of pub skittles or ten-pin bowling, but with a difference. Instead of rolling a ball at some skittles, you chuck a club at them! (the rules are at pain to explain that it is not a violent game!). Apparently the game has been played since 1376. If you enlarge the photo, you will see the club in the air heading towards the skittles.

As far as I could deduce the rules, each player (2 play at a time) get 6 skittles, and three clubs to knock them down with. Unlike tradional skittles where the more you knock down, the higher your score, Bitlles Catalanes gives you the most points if you can leave 1 skittle standing. The points being (after 3 clubs):

1 skittle fallen = 1 point
2 skittles fallen = 2 points
3 skittles fallen = 3 points
4 skittles fallen = 4 points
5 skittles fallen = 10 points
6 skittles fallen = 6 points I only saw old boys playing, but I guess if you sweet talked them, they would be happy for a tourist to have a go! So just bring yourself...

Arc del Triomf

by vivalasteph

This triumphal arch marks the entrance to the city from the Parc de la Ciutadella and was built for the 1888 Universal Exhibition. Created in the Mudejar style, the red brick glows in the sunlight, showcasing the allegorical sculptures on the frieze. It certainly makes a pleasant gateway to home with your weekend shopping!
