The second largest city in Spain is not the easiest to travel around with your car during peak hours. In Barcelona there are more than 1,600,000 people who live there, which added to the people who live in the vicinity and work in the capital of Catalonia can get up to around three million people a day, so do not expect to find deserted streets waiting for you.
On the other hand, you also have to be careful with the date you choose to visit it. In summer, the influx of tourism is huge and not only will it be difficult to move along with the pavements of Barcelona, but finding a parking space for your car will be even more difficult.
Parking in Barcelona
The vast majority of the streets of Barcelona have divided their parking spaces into the Blue Zone and Green Zone:
• Blue Zone: You can leave your car parked, for a payment, for up to four hours, where in the case that you want to continue parking your car, you will have to move it. They are designed to favour shopping areas and with the aim of parking and after a while, leaving your space for someone else. It is divided into four zones (A, B, C and D), each with a different rate.
• Green Zone: These areas are designed for residents, who have a pass and pay around 5 euros per month, they can park in the green area that corresponds to their home. For the rest of the people the price of parking here is higher than in the blue zone, and also they can only park for two hours’ maximum, with the aim of leaving these places free for residents who pay their fees.
If you do not meet the specified time, your car can be towed away and you will also have to pay a fine. You can find yourself in the same situation if you do not pay to leave your car in any of these two areas.
For that reason, in Parclick, and also with the objective that you do not have to complicate things, we give you the possibility of leaving your car in the parking lot that you prefer. Do you think we are saying one thing but meaning another?
