Flights to Barcelona
What to know before you fly to Barcelona?
If you’re flying into Barcelona, it’s worth brushing up on a few key phrases. There are two official languages, Spanish and Catalan, and you’ll hear both. Phrases such as por favor (please), gracias (thank you), and dos cervezas, por favor (two beers please) will get you off to a good start.
The currency in Spain is the euro (€) and the weather is good all year-round although summers can be quite hot. Getting around Barcelona is easy on foot, although the Metro system is well signposted, efficient and air-conditioned. Of all the incredible things to do in Barcelona, simply enjoying the delicious food is probably one of the best.
