What is a Barcelona Card?

This discount city pass is a sightseeing card that fits easily into your purse or wallet but can save you heaps of cash. This tourist card is a travel or transport pass which includes a lot of benefits. You get unlimited free public transport, the best Barcelona museums for free, and lots of discounts for attractions, tours, visits, restaurants, shops and more.

The Barcelona city card is not just a simple transport card or metro card. It offers the chance to save a lot of money when you visit Barcelona. This Barcelona travel card is perfect for tourism activities. It is easy to purchase and is worth the time and money it takes to buy one. The card price depends on the number of days you choose to buy, and also if you purchased online or upon arrival at the city.

Be aware that the Hola BCN card and the T10 card are just plain transport cards with no benefits included. These are travel cards only that do not include free museums nor discounted visits. They have nothing to do with the Barcelona tourist discount card.

Cardholders of the Barcelona sightseeing pass enjoy discounts on meals or souvenirs, free or discounted attractions, and free public transit. Visitors can choose the duration of the pass between 3 to 5 days, so they can maximize their savings!

The Power of the Barcelona Discount Pass

No matter what your trip itinerary looks like, you will find something that the BCN Card can help you with. Use the Barcelona pass to skip the line at select attractions, zip around the city on public transportation or use the Barcelona discount card to save on dinner at select restaurants.

How Much is the Barcelona Card?

The cost of the tourist discount card largely depends on where you buy the card from. For example, the most expensive option would be to wait until you arrive and by it from the first tourist kiosk you see. A much more price friendly option is to pre-purchase the Barcelona pass online, for instance, we might offer the card occasionally with up to a €6.00 discount.

Travel should be one of your joys in life, not something you dread because of how much money you spend or how much time you spend waiting in pesky lines or getting lost. With the free maps, guidebooks, free and discounted admission, and line jumping options that the Barcelona tourist pass offers, visitors can look forward to a stress free trip!
