Best Time of Year to Visit Barcelona
Barcelona, like any other Spanish city, is worth visiting at any time of the year, but during the summer months, the city is indeed very crowded with tourists. We recommend renting your RV or camper van in Barcelona for some time between May and June, as the temperatures start to rise, the tourist crowds are still ok, and there are several events in the city.
Summer in Barcelona is anything but calm and relaxed. There are tourists from all over the world, high temperatures accompanied by crowded beaches, and the prices of everything tend to rise due to the high season.
During autumn and winter, it’s very likely to rain, but being a city located directly on the Mediterranean, temperatures remain stable. Plus, there are fewer tourists during this time.
Filling and Emptying Water Tanks in Barcelona
Your adventure on wheels is coming to an end, but you forgot to empty the grey water tank. Don’t worry, here are the closest grey water emptying service areas in Barcelona:
- Carrer Major, 623, 08759 Vallirana
- Passatge del Pintor Mir, 08160 Montmeló

Parking Near the Barcelona Station
If you would like to visit Barcelona, the best thing to do is park outside of the city center and visit the Catalan capital by public transit. If you do want to park in the city, try the free parking in the university area or near Montjuic. You can also look for paid blue zone parking in more central areas, but it’s not that easy. You don’t pay for blue zone parking in Barcelona on Sundays.
The most expensive but the safest parking options in Barcelona are the underground car parks. Please be aware of the minimum height requirement when you go to park your RV or camper van rental.
Paying Tolls in Spain
You don’t have to register a toll system for your roadsurfer vehicle when you drive in Spain, and you can decide whether to use a toll-free motorway or a (private) toll road.
The private toll roads are marked with a “R” or “AP” and a toll on the traffic signs. Toll roads can be paid at the toll booth by credit card or cash. Please pay attention and do not drive through the “Telepeaje” booths, as those are only for cars with a transponder installed. You can check which ones are toll roads and how much they cost here.
