Barcelona is known for many things from Gaudi to paella, but that is soon bound to change. The city is a veritable paradise for via ferrata climbing enthusiasts and boasts innumerable routes, some of which are just outside the city and others that are a bit farther away.
Whether it is your first time climbing the iron rails or you are a seasoned pro, the perfect route is waiting for you here.
For those looking for some introductory level via ferratas, look no further than Cala del Molí in nearby Girona. Offering easy and stunning routes that take climbers up above the Mediterranean Sea, there is no better place to get acquainted with the sport. Various routes, just west in Montserrat, are also perfect for beginners.
Climbers looking for a bit more of a challenge may opt to head out of the city and to De les Dames or Teresina. Both of these climbing options are perfect for intermediate climbers looking for a slightly more technical challenge paired with incredible views too, of course.
Average daily temperatures in Barcelona range from 12 ºC (54 ºF) during the winter to 25 ºC (77 ºF). Rainfall is also pretty infrequent year-round with autumn and spring being the wettest (but still comparatively dry) times of year.
Any trip to Barcelona begins with a flight into Josep Tarradellas Barcelona-El Prat Airport (BCN). Most guides will opt to meet you in the city and provide transport to the start of the trip. Otherwise, it is easy enough to get to nearby mountains by bus or rental car.
May to October, but many guides offer trips year-round
