For a detailed street map of Barcelona you can’t really beat Google maps. As well as the street view you can switch to satellite view and even look at photographs of the streets – therefore I have included a Google map here.
Barcelona Metro Map
The metro plan also includes the train lines and stations and trams within the city, as well as the railway line to the airport. If you want a printed metro plan, just ask at any of the metro stations or tourist information centres. You can download a PDF version from the Transports Metropolitans de Barcelona website here: Barcelona Metro Map (PDF download).
Barcelona Bus Map
For all the bus routes in Barcelona it’s best to visit the TBS (Transports Metropolitans de Barcelona) website. There you can choose individual bus routes and then view a map of the route: bus and metro individual maps.
Barcelona’s Official City Map
The Barcelona Council’s official online map is also excellent as you can add in things such as the metro stations, public administration buildings, accommodation, sports facilities and restaurants:
If you’re visiting Barcelona, one of the best ways to see the city is to take the tourist bus. Barcelona Bus Turistic has three routes – red, blue and green – and they give you a tour of the city in an open top bus. You can hop on and off at any of the bus stops (many of which are located at main tourist attractions) for the price of one ticket.
Most importantly, the tours run very regularly and all year round. There is also an app you can download.
Finally, for information of ticket prices and the types of tickets available, check out our section on Barcelona Transport.
