Barcelona Balboa Weekend will take place in Barcelona city, in Gracia area in these locations:
CAT: Travessia Sant Antoni 6.
Violeta: Carrer Maspons 6.
Alnouart: Carrer Berga 36.
Simuteca: Carrer Montseny 22.
For accommodation, the nearest Hotel for all Venues is La Casa del Sol that offers a discount for all Barcelona Balboa Weekend participants.
To move around Barcelona, you can buy a metro ticket T10 for 10.20€ which contains 10 single trips. And if you combine bus and metro within 45 min you we’ll only spend one trip fare. Students who do the week formula will be in Castelldefels beach, in a village close to Barcelona, from monday to thursday.
If you are planning to travel to Barcelona by car, the easiest option is to ask at your hotel to book a parking space for you. There are also indoors and outdoors parking spaces where you can leave your car but they normally are a bit more expensive than the hotel ones. The cheapest option is to park in a free space close to Gràcia area but they are hard to find. Also we don’t advice you to use your car during the weekend if you are visiting the city or your accomodation is not in Gracia area.
From Barcelona airport you can take the metro, the train, the bus or a taxi and it will only take you between 20-35min to get to Barcelona center, except by metro, that will take you 1 hour. There is one train every 30 min and there are buses every 5 min but if you arrive at T1 you’ll need to take a free bus to T2 and then go to the train station. So if your flight arrives at T1, we would advise you to take the bus to Barcelona center directly from there. From T1 you could also take the metro. Train will cost you 2.15€, metro 4.50€, bus 5.90€ and taxi around 25€ and 40€. Once you are in the center, you can get to the workshop by metro going to Fontana station (green line).
