Barcelona Card Tips (6)

Barcelona Card

Favorite thing I have extensively looked into this discount card. And, for the places I plan to see and things to do, I will be better off not buying the card. Prices vary according the number of days you plan to use the card. It is not activated until the first time you use it. There is no expiration after your initial purchase. If you purchase online, you will have to redeem your online ticket(email) at one of four places:
Pl. Catalunya, Plaça de Catalunya, 17, cellar.
Monday - Sunday: 9am - 9pm / Closed: 1/1, 25/12

Pl. Sant Jaume, C/ Ciutat, 2.

Barcelona CArd is Expensive

Favorite thing WE evaluated the value of the Barcelona card, and it turned out not to be worth the purchase price. A card for 3 days costs 34 Euro and 4 days 38 Euro. It would be beneficial if you got into Gaudi sites for free or substantial reduced price, but that is not the case. Sagrada for example is only 2 Euro off the 12 Euro price, and BAtllo only 3 Euro off 17 Euro price, and Pedrar not much better at 1,50 Euro off at 12 Euro entry. The only real value may be in going to the MNAC, of CAtalan Artr Museum in Montjuic because it is free and saves 8 Euro, and Museo D'Historia for 6 Euro. Overall if you saw all the sites you could over 4 days, you still end up paying about 4-5 Euro more than normal entry fees to sites.

General Sightseeing

Favorite thing Sights and museums in Barcelona are spread out across the city, so you do need to use public transport. A T-10 ticket entitles you to 10 rides on the bus or metro, and costs €6.90 (£4.60). A single ticket costs €1.25 (83p) and a day ticket costs €5.25 (£3.50). Tourist tickets are available for periods from two to five days, from €9.60 (£6.40). The Barcelona Tourist Bus has two routes stopping off at major points of interest and costs €19 (£12.75) for one day or €23 (£15.40) for two days, with discounts at museums, attractions and restaurants. The Barcelona Card includes public transport, and discounts at museums, attractions and shops. From €24 (£16) for two days.
