Fact Sheet

What's in our video about Barcelonaprint

Our video for Barcelona has five extremely useful tips on how to save money there:

1. Soak up the atmosphere along Las Ramblas
Easily the most famous street in Barcelona, Las Ramblas is always packed with people so there's always a great atmosphere. There's lots to see there, such as the various stalls and lots of street performers.
2. Relax in one of its parks
Barcelona has two parks which are free to visit and are perfect for relaxing:
  • Parc Guell: Gaudi's park north of the city centre is home to the famous lizard statue, the winding bench Banc de Trencadis and much more.
  • Parc de la Ciutadella: Closer to the city centre, the showpiece here is the fountain known as Cascada.
  • 3. Save money when buying tickets for the metro by buying a 'T-10'
    A single journey on Barcelona's metro costs €2 approximately. But as the city is quite big, meaning you'll use the metro on numerous occasions during your stay, instead of buying individual tickets invest in a 'T-10' which costs around €8 and will get you 10 journeys.
    4. Enjoy cheap cava wine in 'Can Paixono'
    Located on Carrer de la Reina Cristina in the Barceloneta neighbourhood, Can Paixono is a tapas where that sells cheap rosa cava wine once you buy portions of tapas.
    5. Enjoy some sunshine on the beach
    Barcelona's beach is just fifteen minutes walk from the city centre, so if the sun is shining when you're there grab your towel and catch some rays which costs absolutely nothing.
    And finally...
    Another great way to save money in Barcelona is by staying hostels, not hotels, such as Equity Point Centric which boasts an amazingly central location on Passeig de Gracia.
