To and from the Airport in Barcelona

Getting to Barcelona city center from Barcelona International Airport is best done using the Aerobus A1 line stops (blue bus with yellow writing) outside all terminal buildings and travels along Gran Via to Plaza Catalunya.

Buses depart every 6-9 minutes, the published journey time is 35 minutes (although can take considerably longer during rush hour) and costs €3.90 one-way. Aerobuses stop running at midnight, but you can catch a Night Bus night bus service instead.

Taxis are supposed to use a zone chart for trips into the city, but rarely do, - expect to pay up to €25

More on Barcelona

Barcelona Gaudi passage Barcelona's cultural roots go back 2000 years. To a greater extent than the rest of Catalonia, where Catalonia's native Catalan is more dominant, Barcelona is a bilingual city: Catalan and Spanish are both official languages and widely spoken. The Catalan spoken in Barcelona, Central Catalan, is the one closest to standard Catalan.

Barcelona has many venues for live music and theatre, including the world-renowned Gran Teatre del Liceu opera theatre, the Teatre Nacional de Catalunya, the Teatre Lliure and the Palau de la Música Catalana concert hall. Barcelona also is home to the Sonar Music Festival[37] which takes place around June every year.
