Via Laietana is a wide avenue that connects the Ensanche district with Barcelona Port, crossing the whole Ciutat Vella, that is to say, the historical centre of the City of Barcelona.
It is one of the city’s main arteries and is near a lot of the main attractions so there is always a fair amount of traffic flowing up and down. This obviously makes parking in the area quite tricky as parking in general in Barcelona, especially in the central area and inside the old walled city, is difficult enough as it is.
It is important to note that most of the streets of Barcelona's Ciutat Vella have been pedestrianised to avoid an overwhelming volume of vehicles. However, those still open to traffic have some fairly limiting parking restrictions. The majority of parking in Barcelona is marked out into regulated areas, with the green and blue parking areas being the stars of the show. These are intended to help the mobility and rotation of vehicles, so you can only park for a certain period before you have to move on.

Via Laietana is a major thoroughfare through Barcelona that runs from Plaça Urquinaona to Plaça d’Antonio López, pretty much all the way down to the sea. It is one of the largest streets in the city, used by a huge number of vehicles all day every day.
The name of the street is a tribute to the Iberians who used to live there. Designed by Ildefonso Cerdá, the project began in 1859. After some modifications were made, construction started in 1907, with the finishing touches being made in 1926.
Throughout the street you can admire striking buildings of Modernist, Art Deco and Art Nouveau style, something not very comparable to the rest of Barcelona, which makes it a very touristy area. Right next to the road you will find the Plaça del Rei and Barcelona Cathedral which are surrounded by other important historical buildings as well as some museums, including the Gaudí Exhibition Centre and the Barcelona History Museum and more!
If you travel to Barcelona it is important that you visit Via Laietana and explore all the streets that cut this impressive avenue. Reserve parking with Parclick and choose the guarded car park that best suits your needs.
