1 week in Barcelona

Hi Trippers! Barcelona surprised us with its unique architecture, delicious Paella, and amazing sunsets.

Transports

We chose T10, it’s a multi-person travel card that costs 10.20€ and it’s valid for 10 intermodal journeys. With it, you can also take advantage of the Train (not Metro) from/to Terminal 2 of Barcelona El Prat airport.
