Barcelona Metro System (Subway or undeground)
Barcelona Metro (subway)
Barcelona subway and metro system must be one of the best in the world. For me personally, it is second only to the South Korean subway system which is the bets I have personally come across.
The Barcelona metro/subway map has extensive lines and will take you just about everywhere you are likely to need to go in and on the outskirts of the city. Fares are very cheap on the subway, particularly if you but a T10 (10 trip ticket) from the ticket machine. If you are in the city for a week just buy a 10 trip ticket and this might be enough for the whole week.
When you start using the ticket you will know how many trips you have remaining because the numbers show on the back of the ticket in ink. Trains come very frequently, often every 3 minutes and the trains are much more spacious than those you might have experienced in a city such as London.
The benefits of the Barcelona Metro service:
- Very cheap
- Easy to use
- Spacious platforms and spacious trains
- Trains are very frequent (much more so than the London Underground).
If you are only in the city for a few days then the metro is by far the easiest form of transport to get used to and to get around on.
