If only every park was made like this one. If you like skating banks in all varieties this is the place to check out. The whole area around PCNB has banks and drops into banks and gaps into banks. If you want to find exactly where these are go to the Barcelona Skate Spot Map.
One of the more unique spots which provides a great photo op is the wooden triangle gaps. There are a bunch of wooden triangles in a lagoon that you can gap over. It’s a challenge but hey it can’t all be easy. There’s also a cool bank (big surprise).
There are lots of other things to skate in the area so just cruise around and explore. You might even run into this ledge sticking out of the building with a gap into the bank.
Lot’s of these trip videos on You Tube. Enjoyed this one. Has a great soundtrack, fun skating and a good crew. This gives a real good sense of what it’s like to take a skate trip in Barcelona. Good work!
We had several people asking where this spot is located. Thanks to Tom Randall for giving us directions. Unfortunately while this place looks great it’s a bust. If you go here chances are you might get a ticket from the police. There are signs all over the place forbidding skateboarding so if you do go skate at your own risk.
If you still want to know the exact location check out the Barcelona Skate Spot Map. Also check out the video below for footage at this spot at 1:24.
Once and a while I get questions about spots that aren’t on the map. People see pictures of places in Barcelona but don’t know where they are. Below I have posted a few spots and labeled them. If you know where they are let me know and they can go on the skate map. And yes I know the first two are BMX shoots but let’s not be haters. They actually could be fun for skating too.
Metro Line L2 will take you to famous and not so famous spots. You will probably start at Paral-lel which is obviously worth a visit. For a full description of the spot go to the Paral-lel blog entry. Needless to say it’s a great place to start off with manual pads, smooth ground and a mellow bank to ledge that can keep you going for hours.
But don’t just stay at Paral-lel. Once you are ready to go out exploring a bit more jump on the Purple L2 and jump off at Universitat. Again check out the Universitat blog post
for details but as always these three granite ledges are amazing. Personally it’s my favourite spot.
Next stop is Monumental. You won’t find a monument but instead a well waxed U-Ledge. As always you can find exact directions to these places on the Barcelona Skate Map.
The next station of St. Marti has two spots that are definitely worth checking out. The first is almost beside the station. In the middle of a tree lined boulevard you will find a metal bump. It looks like a wave in the sidewalk and it is so much fun to do launches off.

Three blocks away is one of the best handrails in Barcelona. It’s in a park so you won’t get kicked out, the run up is good and the landing as well. Excellent spot to film a few handrail tricks.

As you continue on you are probably getting a bit sweaty. Hey that’s what happens when you are skating hard in the best place on earth. It’s probably time to head down to the beach, check out the view and take a swim. So why not get off at Sant Roc. There also happens to be a fairly well known spot with benches that you can launch off over a garbage can. Great for pictures and you will no doubt find some other spots on the way to this beautiful Barcelona boardwalk.
Before you head home for the day its worth checking out Pep Ventura. Several blocks from this stop you will find a strange building that is shaped like a ball with red triangles all over it. Fortunately the bricks banks holding up this building are also shaped like triangles which means they’re brick hips. This is a nice spot to end the day with.
