    But there are three important points to consider to understand why it is better to visit Barcelona by public transport.

    - First of all, note that not all car models can circulate in Barcelona 7 days a week.

    Note that the city of Barcelona has many pedestrian streets, which limits the number of places where you can stop ; in addition, among the parking spaces you will find, blue or green, you'll need to calculate your journey time carefully to avoid a fine.
    Please note that payment for blue seats is for a maximum of 4 hours, and that the green spaces that were designed for the residents of the neighbourhood, but which may also be parked, the price is more expensive than the blue seats and can be credited for a maximum of 2 hours.

    - And for additional information, an essential advantage of using the Barcelona metro and other public transport services in the city, is that they can drop you off right at the tourist attractions and monuments that you want to see.

    The Sagrada Familia metro station takes you right up to the monument ;

    The Passeig de Gracia metro stop takes you to the entrance to Casa Batllo ;
    The Jaume 1 station takes you just 2 steps from Barcelona Cathedral ;
    Liceu or Drassanes stations bring you to the heart of the Ramblas ;

    May 14th, 2024 - Barcelona metro plans
    Plans for Barcelona's metro network

    With the aim of expanding Barcelona's metro network, improve the connections between trains, streetcars, buses and the metro, as well as facilitating public transport access to Barcelona's neighbouring municipalities and other poorly served areas, several projects have been launched and will make way for 40 new metro stations by 2030.
    What about Barcelona metro line L1 (red line), which currently runs from Fondo to Bellvitge, it is planned, on one side, the creation of 5 new stations (Montigalà; Lloreda | Sant Crist; Bufalà; Badalona Pompeu Fabra and Badalona) in the aim of connecting train and metro to Badalona by the end of 2031. On the other hand, on the other side of the line 1, the project would include an extension from Bellvitge to Prat de Llobregat, and, in addition to the existing connection at the "Torrassa" stop, would create a new connection between lines L1 and L9.
    About Barcelona's L2 metro line (Barcelona purple metro line), 2 new stations are scheduled to simplify access to Montjuic. On one side of the hill, a stop called Montjuic would be located between the Montjuic Magic Fountain and the National Palace (National Museum of Catalan Art), as well as a second stop named Foixarda which would be housed in the street of the same name, providing, among other attractions, easy access to the Poble Espanyol. On the opposite side of Montjuic mountain, the route of the extension of the line 2 would include the Foc station of the L10 line, and would pass through Fira and Parc Logistic.
