Parking price in Barcelona depends on the neighbourhood and whether it is an indoor or outdoor car park. City center car parks are usually more expensive, and as previously mentioned, you should be wary of which zone you park your car in. Remember, Área Verda is designed for residents and non-residents have to pay substantially more in the Green Zone than in the Blue Zone, for only up to 2 hours. If you want to park on-street, you can always use the Parclick app.
Also we have very cheap parkings in the city center of Barcelona, we actually have promotions in several parking lots where it is more economical to book the day or 12 hours from 9.99 euros and it is much cheaper than paying by the hour. Some of them are:
Parking in Barcelona can be complicated, considering it’s the second-largest city in Spain. Nearly 2 million people live in the city, so don’t be surprised if you can’t seem to find any parking. You will either have to park in a public car park or on the street. To make it easier on you, check out the Parclick app available for iOS and Android. Here, you can book from many car parks in Barcelona. You choose the best one for you!
When driving and parking in Catalonia, there are a couple of considerations you should take into account:
Implemented to restrict the most polluting vehicles from driving in the city. Make sure to check your car’senvironmental label to find out if your vehicle could be affected by these restrictions. Vehicles that can access the ZBE are those with the labels ZERO, ECO, C, or B.
This ZBE covers the city of Barcelona (except for the Industrial Zone, the Vallvidrera neighborhood, Tibidabo, and les Planes), as well as L'Hospitalet de Llobregat, Sant Adrià del Besòs, part of Esplugues de Llobregat, and Cornellà de Llobregat.
It is active from Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. Vehicles without an environmental label can access the ZBE in off hours, on weekdays from 8 p.m. until 7 a.m. and on weekends. During holidays, those vehicles cannot enter the city of Barcelona.
Another consideration you should keep in mind is how parking spaces in Barcelona are divided into two categories:
Área Blava (Blue Zone): You can park your car, having pre-paid with the Parclick app, for up to 4 hours. If you want to extend the time, you will have to move your car to another place. These parking spaces are designed more for shopping districts, with the idea that you park, spend a while there, and then leave the space available for the next person. The Blue Zone is divided into four categories (A, B, C, and D) and each one has a different fare.
If you don’t follow the rules about the maximum times or fail to pay, your car could be towed and you will have to pay a fine.
3. Lastly, we recommend you to carefully consider what time of year you want to visit Barcelona. In summer, the massive influx of tourists won’t only make it hard to get around Barcelona’s streets, but also to find a parking space.
