This May, as in past years, the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, known by many as the Circuit de Montmeló, will host one of the world's great spectacles, the Formula 1 event. As is customary with sporting events of this magnitude, during the days when the competition is taking place, enthusiasts—motor racing enthusiasts in this case—will flock to Barcelona to watch the F1 and visit the city. If you are a motor racing enthusiast and you don't want to miss the F1 Grand Prix, we would recommend that you reserve one of the EnjoyBCN apartments in advance. This will ensure that you have exclusive luxury accommodation in the centre of Barcelona. Enjoying a prime location close to the Sagrada Familia, the Gaudi apartments are perfect for companies, groups and families. They make an excellent choice for your stay in Barcelona during the Formula 1 event. Read more
Every year, the month of May brings the roar of engines to Montmeló, which is situated less than half an hour away by car from the centre of Barcelona. The Spanish F1 Grand Prix is one of the most important dates in the diary of all motor racing enthusiasts. F1 fans will be able to get a close-up view of their idols, top drivers like Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton and the Spaniards Fernando Alonso and Carlos Sainz, who come to the Circuit every year. EnjoyBCN has produced this short guide so that you can make the very most of your stay in Barcelona during the F1 Grand Prix and take home some fantastic memories of your trip.
The fifth race in the Formula 1 GP 2017 season, the Pirelli Spanish Grand Prix, will take place on 12-14 May at the Circuit de Catalunya. Of all the world favourites, once again Mercedes will be the key team to beat. Even so, we should not forget Ferrari, the team of “Il Cavallino Rampante”, or Red Bull or McLaren Honda, who, as in past years, have their hopes pinned on double world champion Fernando Alonso. If you would like to attend the practice and qualifying sessions and, of course, the GP race itself, we recommend taking a look at the timetable to be found on the official website of Circuit Barcelona-Catalunya.
This Formula 1 Grand Prix race will take place at the Circuit Barcelona-Catalunya. Most people know this racetrack as the Circuit de Montmeló due to its location. It opened its doors in 1991 and staged its first F1 Grand Prix just a few weeks later. Today, the Circuit de Catalunya-Barcelona hosts top competitions like the MotoGP Grand Prix, the F1 Grand Prix and the FIA World Rallycross Championship. As if all these events were not enough, in 2005 the Circuit created a Young Driver Programme to promote young talent behind the wheel and help young drivers launch their professional career.
The Circuit de Catalunya has a capacity of 131,000 spectators. The Pirelli Spanish Formula 1 Grand Prix 2016, held on 13-15 May, was attended by more than 165,000 spectators.
If you want to buy tickets for the Spanish F1 Grand Prix 2017, you can do so online, selecting the type of pass you would like: for 3 days, 3 sessions, 1 day, etc.
There are several ways of getting to Montmeló, which is situated just over 30 km from Barcelona. If you are travelling by car, you can reach the Circuit de Catalunya from EnjoyBCN's Gaudí apartments in less than 30 minutes. If you prefer public transport, you can travel to Montmeló by train on Renfe's "rodalies" service (lines R2 and R11). Alternatively, Sagalés offers a special coach service during the Grand Prix event, which runs from the centre of Barcelona to the East Area of the Circuit. If you wish to use this service instead of the train, you should buy your tickets on the Sagalés website in advance.

An address to know when visiting Barcelona; What a pleasure after a day of discovery to return to this remain of peace that adjoins the Sagrada Familia where you feel at home. The area is lively but the apartment is very quiet, well equipped (value for money unbeatable in Barcelona) Many shops, transport nearby ... Pure happiness!

PHENOMENAL apartment. It's absolutely massive, plenty of room for people to hang out collectively in one space, or spread out. Rooms are comfortable, all windows have blackout shades you can pull closed (helped a lot with jetlag). Beds are comfortable, baths and showers are lovely. There's plenty of ensuites to help keep people happy. We were a group of 9 adults and thought it was perfect. Also SUPER walkable to nearly everything you could want/need. Wish we had the opportunity to stay longer.

The property was exactly as advertised. We had quiet nights as the bedrooms were away from the street and separated from the kitchen/living room. The property was very clean and due to our extended stay the additional cleaning service was very appreciated. This location is perfect for those who enjoy walking as many sights were within walking distance. An excellent coffee shop was around the corner and an impressive grocery store was down the street. Our family (including young children) had a fine time. Our only regret is that we could not stay longer.
Dear Mrs. Broderick,
We are so happy to see that you had a great stay at the apartment and felt well taken care of. The truth is that it is a little bit complicated to find a more central apartment!
It is so nice to know that you both and the children enjoyed the space. It has been a pleasure to host you. We hope to see you soon in Barcelona!

Gorgeous apartment! Our stay was absolutely lovely. The space is stylish and clean with an amazing view overlooking the city. It’s also central to many restaurants/cafes and easy access to further neighborhoods and tourist attractions. The space fit our group of 10 very comfortably with three nice large bathrooms and comfortable beds. The common area is bright and welcoming with a kitchen conducive for gathering and entertaining. As is the beautiful rooftop terrace + pool! We would absolutely stay there again.
We are so glad to see that you had a great stay at the apartment and liked it that much. It is also so nice to see that you enjoyed our rooftop terrace. Thank you for this fantastic comment. It has been a pleasure to host you. We hope to see you again soon.
