For many visitors the Articket is a better choice

We suggest studying the document listing discounts offered to each attraction you intend to visit. Also take into account whether you are planning to use Barcelona public transport intensively during your stay. Some visitors find that Barcelona Cards do not offer such discounts that would justify their price.

If you follow PromptGuides’ 3-day City Guide or 5-day City Guide, we suggest that you buy the Articket. It is a similar discount card offering free entrance to 7 Barcelona museums. Read our earlier post for more info on the usage and validity of Articket.
