Barcelona's Maritime Museum is located in the Raval district, right in Barcelona’s Ciutat Vella. It is a museum, where you can see boats and works of art from nautical adventures from throughout history.
But downside comes from being a fantastic museum in the centre of the Catalan capital? Well, it means that finding somewhere to park isn’t the easiest thing to do in the world! Think tourists, lots of them, small old streets and Barcelona’s on street parking regulations. ‘What’s that?’ We hear you ask, well in Barcelona prices and parking rules vary on whether you’re parked in the green zone or the blue zone, and regulations change again depending on whether you’re a resident or not! Sounds like a headache you want to avoid? Well take a look at the map and find a car park, which suits you!
