europe BARCELONA is the second largest city in Spain. Parking on-street is difficult in the centre due to a lack of parking spaces. We recommend to use one of the public car parks in the centre or on one of the safe guarded P+R's on the outskirts.


A Low Emission Zone exists in and outside the centre ring roads of Barcelona. Barcelona. The ZBE is active on Monday to Friday from 07:00 - 20:00. Entry of the zone is only permitted with an environmental badge.
