Public Transportation

If you need information about metro or bus in Barcelona it may be quite hard because usually, the people who are here to help you don’t speak English. If you just want to buy a ticket, the simplest way to do it is through the machines you’ll be able to find at each metro station.

CatalunyaMetroStation

If you want information, try to go to plaça catalunya metro station, this is where you have the best chances to find someone who speaks English (maybe not a very good English but still!).

English bookstores
