Barcelona Driving Information
An International Drivers' Permit (or IDP) may be required, especially if your local drivers' licence is in a language other than the local language (you may inquire when you pick up your car).
Like all other major cities, Barcelona has a lot of traffic. However, since the 1992 Olympic Games driving around the city and the surrounding areas has improved considerably, especially on the Ronda Litoral and the Ronda de Dalt ring roads. On the other hand, the layout of the roads in Barcelona which form a grid helps your orientation when driving around the city. Drivers in Barcelona tend to be more patient than in other parts of Spain and they pay more attention to road signs as well.
In general cars do not usually turn into a street if they are in the middle lane and they hardly ever park next to someone who has double parked. There are a lot of car parks in Barcelona so you shouldn't have any problems finding a parking. Once inside the city you can move around on foot, by bike, bus or underground. What may strike you is the number of small mopeds that there are, it often feels like it is the city with the highest number of mopeds in the world.
