A good number of writers have set their novels in the city or have moved there to pursue their literary careers. Do you want to follow in their footsteps and discover their legacies? If so, our literary trails are the perfect plan. Do you want to turn the page? Literary Barcelona at its best. Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia, which has been in a standoff with the Spanish government in Madrid over an independence referendum in October.
Parliamentary elections in December returned separatists to power, although they got less than 50 percent of the popular vote. Madrid has been running Catalonia through "direct rule," avoiding the region's parliament. That said, things on the streets of Barcelona are calm, according to Noemi Rosell of Turisme Barcelona. There haven't been demonstrations since October and transportation, the airport, and hotels are running smoothly, she said.
Unlike in previous years, we haven't heard threats of transportation or workers' strikes during MWC. That said, there's always some sort of shenanigans going on in town during the show.

There will inevitably be someone with a banner making a statement, like in when members of the Femen feminist group protested Facebook's photo censorship policies, or in when a Greenpeace protester interrupted the Samsung press conference to make a statement about recycling. Barcelona is a politically active town, and MWC is just too big a stage to turn down. The Fira is an extremely efficient, well-laid-out convention center, but it's also extremely long. If you're headed to Halls or Registration, you need to go to the South Entrance.
If you're headed to Halls , you need to go to the North Entrance.

Halls 4 and 5 are in the middle. You can pick up your badge and transit pass at the airport, so make sure to do that before heading into the city. The best way to get from the airport to the city center still isn't the train, but the frequent and direct, E5. The relatively new Line 9 subway shown above runs from the airport to a stop directly under the Fira's South Entrance and it connects with several other lines. But if you're coming to the show from the Placa Espanya area and headed to the South Entrance, it's still faster to switch at Espanya for the suburban trains, which go to the Europa-Fira station.
Here's a full Barcelona Metro map. The train stations are a long way from the North Entrance and Hall 8. If that's where you're going, your best bet is still to take a taxi, or the frequent H16 public bus from Placa Espanya or Placa Catalunya to the corner of Passeig de Zona Franca and Foneria, which is close to the North Entrance.
Barcelona has also simplified its bus network in recent years, with new routes running more frequently in straighter lines.

The most relevant buses for MWC-goers are the H12, which cuts a straight line from the South Entrance of the Fira, past the old Fira, down to the Placa Catalunya and beyond; and the aforementioned H16, which can take you to the Forum or to the North Entrance of the Fira. Here's the new bus map.
Uber and Lyft are illegal in Barcelona, but you can still get a taxi using an app. MyTaxi is the dominant app in Barcelona, having subsumed Hailo last year. Taxis are relatively affordable, especially if you're on an expense account. Tip by rounding up to the next euro.
But traffic can get insane during peak hours, making the frequent and easy-to-use trains a speedier bet. MWC also runs special shuttle buses from hotels in outlying areas to the event. In my experience, these buses often get stuck in very bad traffic, so if there's a way for you to take the train instead, take it. You're going to eat a lot of jamon.
But you don't have to give in to the jamon entirely: Barcelona is a global food hub, known for exciting, cutting-edge cuisine. There's a lot of Asian-European fusion going on around town right now. The city has also ramped up its international comfort-food options in the past few years—pizza and Mexican food, for example, have gotten much better.
