We all know that Barcelona is a modern and very cosmopolitan city, with a rich cultural and leisure life. But... is Barcelona a dog friendly city? Well, our answer is that it is getting closer and closer to being so. In fact, Barcelona is one of the cities with the most pet-friendly hotels in Spain, since 2014 there has been a trend in terms of spaces that accept all kinds of pets, especially dogs.
Although there is still a long way to go, it can be said that the vast majority of bars and restaurants in the city allow our dog on the terrace without any problems. Of these, we would highlight Bar Calders, the legendary bar El Velódromo and the Italian restaurant Meneghina. If you want to go shopping, the vast majority of the Inditex group establishments allow you to bring your pet with you, so you can shop without having to leave your dog in the flat or hotel.
If you want to go to the beach with your pet, it will be a bit more difficult if you don't want to leave the capital. During the winter or autumn months you won't have any problem walking with your dog in Barceloneta, but if you want to go for a swim in the summer it won't be possible. What you can do is go to the northern part of Barcelona where you have the Llevant Beach, where pets are allowed all year round. However, if you take a break and visit the beautiful Sitges, you can go to the dog beach of Cala Vallcarca.
Anyone visiting Barcelona is obliged to visit a number of monuments and places of interest. And the best thing is that most of these monuments allow pets. From this website we recommend that the first thing you do is to hire a Free Tour. This will serve you as a first contact. The Free Tour of the Gothic Quarter is very good, and you can do it perfectly with your dog.
Once you have done this tour, you can visit (from the outside) the spectacular façade of the Basilica of the Sagrada Familia. Near the temple we have another essential monument: Casa Batlló. It is said that in this house there is not a single corner, they are all curves. The best thing about it is that you can enter with your pet. Another dog friendly place is the impressive Park Güell, which you must visit. You should also visit the whole area of Montjuic with all its majesty. There you can take incredible photos of yourself under the telecommunications tower.
And finally, there are many museums that allow pets, among them we highlight the Fran Daurel Contemporary Art Foundation.
Once you have booked one of our dog-friendly hotels in Barcelona, you will ask yourself the following question: Can I travel on public transport with my pet? Well, we are all in luck. Since 2015, pets have been allowed on the Barcelona Metro. As long as we meet a series of requirements such as: one pet per person, it must have a microchip, be tied up or in some cases muzzled, and lastly, at peak passenger times you can't travel with dogs.
On the other hand, buses are stricter when it comes to the admission of dogs. You can only travel if you have a guide dog or if you have a small dog and can put it in a carrier.
