Barcelona Metro: L2

Metro Line L2 will take you to famous and not so famous spots. You used to be able to start at the famous Para-lel spot but it’s been torn down. Below is a picture of what used to be there.

However they are building a skatepark there instead so you might want to see how far they’ve gotten when you’re in Barcelona. Once you’ve check out the progress go out exploring a bit more by jumping 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 and the Blue Bench. 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. Across the street there’s a nice height bench to finish things off with.

      I wish I lived in Barcelona. I spent a month there last year and had a great time. If you are looking for people to hook up with MACBA is the place to start off. There is also a skate shop really close by to MACBA as well. Hope you have a great time. There is no place like Barcelona for skating.

        Thanks for the heads up. I am from Brazil btw, I know there’s a lot of brazilians there so there will be no problems on finding ppl to skate, haha. I will stay near Paral-el since you can’t skate everyday at MACBA. Thanks again! Paulo.
