    Barcelona is a gorgeous city in the heart of the Mediterranean. Like most European cities, Barcelona is known for its outdoor markets, restaurants, shops, museums and churches. Take a stroll through the old town 'Ciutat Vella' with its historic buildings and streets. The historic yet unfinished church of La Sagrada Familia is an architectural masterpiece and not to be missed. Keen football fanatics must visit the FC Barcelona Museum and Camp Nou Stadium to get a behind the scenes look into the popular team. The Font Mágica fountain was built for the 1192 World Fair and continues to be a popular attraction with free water and light shows in summer from Thursday through to Sunday. Casa Milà also known as La Pedrera, is a modernist building featuring impressive designs and architecture. Discover the arches, beams and curves in this UNESCO recognised building in the cultural learning centre or sip a coffee in the café.

    The small mountainous country of Andorra is situated northwest of Barcelona. The capital of Andorra la Vella is a picturesque town full of medieval churches, bridges and buildings. Located on the Montserrat Mountain, 45 kilometres northwest of Barcelona is the monastery of Santa Maria de Montserrat. This unique monastery built into the side of the mountain offers stunning views of Barcelona, whilst the statue of the Black Madonna draws pilgrims keen to learn of her miracle story. You can continue up past the monastery where there are hiking trails and parklands. Located on the Mediterranean coast, Tarragona, 100 kilometres from Barcelona, is home to Roman architecture with the spectacular Roman amphitheatre an unmissable attraction. Heading south, the 17 beaches of the resort town Sitges beckon, with a pumping nightlife and beachfront dining offering something for people of all ages.

    Parking and Tolls

    There are a lot of car parks in Barcelona, so you shouldn't have too much trouble finding a spot to leave the car and explore the city on foot. Costs for these car parks can vary but are approximately €3 per hour and range up to €25 for 24 hours. The road layout in Barcelona forms a grid and there are car parks on almost every street in the most central areas. Be sure to park only in marked areas as Barcelona authorities regularly tow cars, even if you have only been in the spot for 5 minutes.

    There is 2,000 kilometres of toll roads in Spain. Rates are distance based and depend on the time of travel, with rates in summer doubled. Lanes marked 'telepago' are for cars fitted with e-tag devices, 'Automático' is for credit card payment only and 'manual' is for cash payments.
