If your hotel is on La Rambla or in close proximity to this Barcelona’s most famous street, you can buy Euro with ease.

If not, there is no problem at all. Since no Barcelona trip is complete without a stroll along the never sleep La Rambla street. Chances are you also find yourself soaking up the lively atmosphere of the area or enjoying a cup of coffee at an alfresco table overlooking the avenue like the majority of visitors do.

If that is the case, combine money exchanging to your trip to the area. You can find good forex shops right at La Rambla, which open their doors to serve you until late evening. There is even a money changer, called Exact Change, that has trading hours lasting until 2:00am.
