How much does a taxi cost from the centre of Barcelona to the port?
There are several ‘muelles’ or docks in Barcelona’s port. Muelle Adosado usually has the most cruise ships. For example, to get to the Columbus monument from Muelle Adosado, the approximate price by taxi is €8.
The Port Vella and World Trade Centre docks are closer to the centre than Muelle Adosado, so the taxi fare is cheaper.
As a rough guide, if you look at the distance between the Columbus monument and the dock, you’ll see that they are quite close on the map. So, if your hotel or point of interest is in the city centre, or you have to cross the whole city, the taxi fare will increase substantially.
For the price it could cost to go from Montjuïc to La Pedrera, La Casa Batlló or La Casa Ametller by taxi, we are offering you a night time tour of Barcelona, visiting these special places with a friendly guide, minibus transport and even a cocktail in a bar with some of the best views of the city.
