Opening hours and prices to enter Barcelona's municipal swimming pools

With an average value of 10 euros, access to Barcelona’s municipal swimming pools, one of the most expensive in Spain, was opened.

And it’s all because summer is approaching and temperatures are rising every day. As a result, many of the municipal outdoor pools are already open and others will be open very soon.

This year the issue is that the entrance fee has increased.

In this regard, the Barcelona City Council confirmed that the cost of the admission ticket for adults is 10 euros. This is 4.7% more compared to 2021.

The most expensive ticket is for CEM Parc de la Ciutadella, which costs 16.42 euros. A difference of 10.24 euros.

To set prices, the facility managers make the first proposal. It then passes through the filter of Institut Barcelona Esport, IBE and the final rate is set by the municipal government commission.
