Tourist cards, a different way to see the city
Sightseeing bus in Madrid
Are you thinking of a break in a Spanish town or city? Are you planning a holiday to discover a city in Spain? If you want to make the most of your visit, we recommend you buy a tourist card. Change your approach in your coming trip. Apply the rule of “less is more”: spend less but get more options. Explore each city in a more practical and convenient way with tourist cards.
Many Spanish destinations have their own tourist cards providing access to a broad range of services and discounts. They offer unlimited use of public transport, admission to museums, and even discounts on shows and shopping.
If you're thinking of visiting a Spanish city, then purchasing a tourist card could be a good option. Each card offers different discounts and validity periods, and prices range from €8 to €60. We recommend asking for advice at the Tourist Office or at the affiliated points of sale to see which card would suit your needs. Once you have it, besides receiving a city map, you'll also be given a guide containing all the monuments, museums and restaurants associated to the card. You can also purchase it online in advance.
Would you like to find out about the benefits tourist cards can offer? Here are just a few. For example, Granada’s tourist card includes admission to the Nasrid Palace of the Alhambra (advance booking is essential). In Toledo, the tourist card lets you take a guided tour of the Cathedral and several museums in the city, sample the local cuisine, and ride on the tourist bus. In Zaragoza, as well as discounts and free admission to museums and monuments, there is a special card for family visits.
Your dinners will also be more affordable. For example, in Bilbao the restaurants affiliated with the city’s tourist card offer a discount of 5% to 10%.
But there's more. How would you like to visit the Valencia Silk Exchange or the Picasso Museum in Barcelona? Barcelona also offers the Barcelona Night Card, with a week’s free entry to the city’s top nightspots.
During your visit to Madrid you can take advantage of substantial discounts on entry to 4 or 8 of the city’s museums.
A perfect combination of benefits and savings. A tourist card will be waiting for you at your destination to make your visit as enjoyable as possible.
