Park problem

We summarized you all the best tricks to park your car to enjoyed your vacations:

  1. You will find two zones in Barcelona: “Azul”(Blue) and “Verde”(Green). We strongly do not recommend to park your car in those zones because it is expensive, complicated and most of the time reserved for local and residents.
  1. You can park for free in those following areas:
  • IKEA : Not in the center but a good alternative for free Park
  • Address: Calle Ciencias, 100, 08907 Hospitalet de Llobregat
  • Metro: L1 – Hospital de Bellvitge
  • LA MAQUINISTA : The Shopping Mall has free parking with no limit time during the day, but it is closed during the night. If you necessary need your car during the night, there is also an exterior parking open 24/24h !
  • Address: Calle Potosí, 2, 08030 Barcelona
  • Metro: L1 – Torras i Bages
  • AVENIDA DIAGONAL : Near Plaça de Pius XII, you will find lots of small and safe streets to park your car.
  • Address: Plaça de Pius XII
  • Metro: L3 – Maria Cristina
  • PARC CIUTADELLA : Obviously next to the Ciutadella Park !
  • Address: Calle de Ramón Turro
  • Metro: L4 – Llacuna
  • MONTJUIC : Free places are close to Fundación Miro. However it is not safe during the night for your car if you decided to park in exterior.
  • Address: Fundación Miró – Parc de Montjuïc, s/n, 08038 Barcelona

  • CALLE ICARIA : It is 30 minutes far from Las Ramblas by walk, close to the beach with an entire area to park for free
