A couple questions about Barcelona: Airport transport and the Sardana

Jump to last reply

I have 2 questions, but first a bit of context: We are arriving at the airport in Barcelona on a Sunday morning in November around 6 am. Our hotel is the Holiday Inn Express on Carrer de Pallars. We know this isn’t the most convenient locale for strolling and seeing what we will want to see in our couple days there, but we had points, so this hotel was free. That is always worth something in terms of inconvenience! (And the hotel is a done-deal and hubby not interested in re-booking—we’ll only be there 2 nights, then pick up a car and head to Terragona for a couple nights and then to Salou from whence we will watch the 2012 RALLY SPAIN – CATALUNYA for 4 nights/days.)

My first question concerns the best way, given the time of day and our jet-lagged-ness, to get from the airport to the hotel. I think a taxi would be best. Is that so? Any confirmation or alternative suggestion would be welcome. We will probably have at least one rolling checked bag as well as a backpack apiece.

Also, I really hope to be at the Cathedral to see the Sardana that day. Do you think we would be able to do this? My “hope this works” plan would be to get to the hotel (probably by taxi?) by 9 ish (?), check in (but probably not into room, but there is a luggage room at the hotel for us to leave bags), and get a taxi to the Cathedral area well before noon. Is that still when the dance begins?
