Although the Barcelona Card offers discounts on a variety of attractions, the free admissions it offers are mostly limited to museums. If you plan on immersing yourself in art and history, then it could save you loads. If not, check out its discounts on everything from tours to tastings to flamenco shows, and do the math. It works as a travelcard across all public transport networks too, but the Hola BCN card might be more suitable for your visit.
If you're planning on seeing a lot of Barcelona but staying off the beaten track, then consider buying a Hola BCN card instead. For a one-off fee, you'll receive unlimited travel across all metro lines, buses, trams, and suburban trains, without paying for attractions you don't plan to visit!

Absolutely great value transport and travel pass. My wife and I were able to access all of Barcelona easily and affordably. We used all modes of transport available to us over the 72 hour period with which we had the Hola Barcelona pass. It cost less between us for our stay than it would have cost just for a taxi from the airport to our hotel one way.
The ticket was worth purchasing as we needed to get to locations further away and couldnt walk everywhere. The Metro is easy to follow once you get used to it and you use a map to know what end of line destination you need to look for.
We used the card for the museums only ones, but travel card Is something you need if you want to travel around Barcelona. So if you don't plan to visit museums you better buy only travel card. It's worth it.
Very useful card. Great way to get around the city, the discounts were awesome. Easy to use and easy to pick up a card. Highly recommend
Without any problem! I got our 3 days travel card at the airport tourist information office great! Im totally satisfied!
