Port Aventura is the second most famous park in Europe, and is located in La Costa Dorada at 1:30 hs by bus from Barcelona. The park offers plenty of activities and play areas for the whole family.

This amaizing park is spread out in several areas, with impressive attractions, from the highest roller coaster in Europe up to 78m, or the Furius Baco which reaches a speed of 135km per hour. There is also a water park with exciting experiences and simulators.

How to get there:

To get from Barcelona by train, the most easy way is to take train (RENFE) line R-16. The most central station is Barcelona Passeig de GrĂ cia, and here you can see the timetables and also you can get a discount to the park, if you buy ticket + entrance in the automatic ticket machine or in the station.
