Skates aren’t a passing trend, they never have been; they’re a fun way to get around that you can use to enjoy beautiful cities like Barcelona. If you like to roll and want to get on some skates during your holiday in the Catalan capital, here are some of the best routes for skating alone, with friends or with a partner.
Eight kilometres of the Catalan coastline to enjoy spectacular sea views, a pleasant sea breeze and one of the most relaxing spots in Barcelona. An open space that is always great on skates.
The old town
13 kilometres where long-distance skaters can take advantage of the bike path network, supposedly for cycles but also suitable for those on skates.
Forum Park, the paved walkway along Parc Fluvial del Besòs (Besòs River Park) or Carrer del Foc, near the Fira de Barcelona Gran Via fairgrounds, on the other side of the city, are also great places to skate in Barcelona.
