Our opinion on the Barcelona Card

The Barcelona Card is a good plan if you are a very active tourist who will not hesitate to make profitable his / her card, travel a lot and visit a lot of places of interest.

There are, however, other intermediate, economical and astute solutions to discover Barcelona.


You can for example combine these two tourist cards of Barcelona:

  • The Hola BCN is an unlimited transport card in Barcelona from 2 to 5 days. It costs 14.5 € for two days.
  • Articket is a skip the line ticket to discover the 6 main museums of Barcelona such as the Picasso Museum, the Antoni Tàpies Foundation, the MACBA ..


Finally you can simply take the Hola BCN for transportation and pick only the skip the line tickets for the tourist places you want to visit.

In this case, we can only advise you to visit the Sagrada Familia first.
