On the other hand, we advise you to have a small amount of Euros (€) in cash to cover some expenses when you arrive in Barcelona.
Banks' opening hours
The opening hours in Spain may be a little different from those in your country, for example the banks' opening hours.
They usually attend their customers from Monday to Friday between 8.00 am and 2.30 pm. This may vary depending on the bank, and some of them may open in the afternoon. We recommend that you visit their website so that you know when you can go (depending on the procedure, you may even have to make an appointment).

Do you want to know them all? You can check them out below!
Formerly known as the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, it was designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner. It is the largest architectural ensemble of this style in Europe and an excellent example of Catalan modernism, it is considered one of the most outstanding buildings of Barcelona's modernism.
Built by Lluís Domènech i Montaner (who also designed the Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site) as the headquarters of the Orfeó Català in the center of Barcelona. It is the only concert hall that has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is a great example of Catalan modernism.
Eusebi Güell was an industrialist, politician and patron of the arts and culture who commissioned Antoni Gaudí to design this building. His daughter donated the Palau to the Diputació de Barcelona in 1945 so that it could preserve the building and open its doors to visitors.
Eusebi Güell also commissioned Antoni Gaudí to create a housing development for wealthy families with 60 plots, but due to difficulties in selling these, it became the city's most famous park and a major tourist attraction.
Considered a monumental model of the Sagrada Familia, it is an atypical example with materials of colors and textures resembling the vegetation and the ground, being integrated with the small forest that surrounds it.
Josep Batlló commissioned Antoni Gaudí to demolish the building and gave him creative freedom for the construction of another building, but Gaudí did not demolish it, but made an integral reform with great details: for example, the facade, which was inspired by marine life.
Apart from the UNESCO world heritage, Barcelona has much more to offer, here are some visits that may be of interest to you:
