Everything You Need to Know About Free Parking in Barcelona !
Well, to be honest, it’s not easy to find free parking in Barcelona
, sometimes it could even turn into a nightmare! Anyway, we’ll give you some inspiration on where to park for free in Barcelona
1 GOD BLESS WEEKENDS
First of all, know that during weekends you can park for free in Barcelona
(almost) everywhere. Just make sure there is the panel “Prohibido aparcar Laborables de dilluns a divendres 8-20h” which means “parking forbidden from Monday to Friday 8-20h”.
Not really close to the center, but as a free parking in Barcelona
it could be useful. God bless Sweden too, and not only for the low cost furnitures.
Address: Calle ciencias, 100. 08907 Hospitalet de Llobregat (Metro L1 “Hospital de Bellvitge”).
3 LA MAQUINISTA
The Shopping Mall La Marquinista has a subterranean parking with 4.800 places. It’s free and there is no time limit during the day, but it’s closed during the night. Don’t worry: there is also an exterior parking, where you can leave your car for free 24/24h.
Address: Calle Potosí, 2. 08030 Barcelona (Metro: L1 “Torras i Bages”).
4 AVENIDA DIAGONAL
Another interesting solution to park for free in Barcelona is around Plaça de Pius XII, where Avenida Diagonal crosses Avenida de Pedralbes. There are lots of smaller streets where you can leave your car in absolute safety. Metro L3 "Maria Cristina".
5 PARC CIUTADELLA
Next to Ciutadella Park, in Calle de Ramón Turro, it’s possible to park for free. Metro L4 "Llacuna".
6 ZONA UNIVERSITARIA
If you come to Barcelona during the night and you are lucky enough, you’ll find a place in Zona Universitaria. And it wouldn’t cost a euro! Metro L3 "Zona Universitaria".
Close to “Fundación Miro”, in Montjuic, there are many free places. Really interesting option for parking in Barcelona
before a hike up the mountain. Metro L3 "Poble Sec".
8 CALLE ICARIA
Around Calle Icaria, 30 minutes walking from La Rambla and very close to Metro L4 “Vila Olimpica” there is an entire area where you are allowed to park for free.
9 PARKING VIAJEROS
Ok, this is not for free, but Parking Viajeros offers the lowest fares. It’s a subterranean, watched parking. The staff speak different languages (English, French, Spanish, Portuguese). The price is 28€ for 4 days, which is the minimum stay. Extra days will cost you 7€ per day. Open 24/24.
Address: Carrer Carreras i Candi, 65 Barcelona. Metro L5 “Badal” and L1-L5 ”Mercat Nou”.
For what concerns paying for parking spots, they are managed by the company BSM. On the website you will find a map displaying all the parking in Barcelona
. Yes, the prices are high (2,89€ / hour, 37,45€ day ) but the subscriptions they offer are quite interesting.
