To the south of Plaça de Catalunya you can find the old town and most of the museums and other historical places of interest of the city. To the east of the Rambla you can find the beautiful and romantic Barri Gòtic



The Metro

The metro is the easiest way to get around the city. Metro lines are all identified by a number and a colour; the direction is shown by the name of the line terminals. Tickets must be validated in a machine on the platform before boarding and carried at all times to avoid the Pta5000 penalty.

Buses

You may need buses or suburban trains to reach some places. Buses run along most city routes every few minutes. You can buy multiple-trip city tickets that offer worthwhile savings.
