Planning Your Visit

  • Local lingo

    Barcelona's official language is Catalan, native to the Catalonia region. Although most people will understand Spanish, you'll get further if you learn a few words of Catalan!

  • Hot, hot, hot

    Owing to its Mediterranean location, Barcelona gets pretty warm, especially in the summer! Make sure you sunscreen up and stay in the shade around midday.

  • Stay safe

    Barcelona is generally a safe city, but common sense should still be put into practice. Keep valuables tucked safe into your bag - not pockets - and make sure your belongings are always within your sight.

  • Mix it up

    Barcelona city sightseeing tickets are available - if you're keen on one attraction, it's best to combine it with other things to save entry money and get more from your visit.

Good to know

  • When should I visit?
    The park opens at 10:00 AM and remains open until at least 9:00 PM, depending on the day and month.

  • Will I need a guide?

  • How to get there
    Take the Green Line L3 to Drassanes and it's just a short walk to the aquarium.
