LA CATEDRAL

La Catedral Barcelona With Baby - Stroller vs Baby Carrier

The main entrance to La Catedral is at the top of a flight of stairs, approximately 10-15 steps high.  There is an alternate entrance on Plaça de Sant Lu (facing the Marès Museum) which is more stroller friendly, but you must contact security before being allowed to use this entrance.  Once inside the church, you can explore most of the areas with little issue, but be aware that some areas can only be accessed via steps. 

LA SAGRADA FAMÍLIA

La Sagrada Familia with Baby

Not all areas of this church are accessible for strollers.  In addition, it is so busy inside that it can be difficult to maneuver at times.  That being said, the line up to enter can be quite long and you won’t have any protection from the sun for your baby.  We recommend going with your stroller but bringing a baby carrier as well. 

LA PEDRERA

La Pedrera Barcelona with Baby - Stroller vs Baby Carrier

All areas of this attraction are accessible by stroller, with the exception of the roof.  The rooftop chimneys are one of the main attractions at La Pedrera, but unfortunately the rooftop is nothing but rolling stairs - up and down, up and down.  If you do bring a stroller, there is a small viewing platform on the rooftop just outside the elevator.  We recommend visiting this attraction with a baby carrier instead so you can enjoy the entire attraction.



MUSEU D’HISTÒRIA DE BARCELONA – PLAÇA DEL RIE LOCATION

Museu d'Història de Barcelona  with baby - Stroller vs Baby Carrier

This museum is actually an archaeological dig site, which has been covered by a building.  Visitors tour the dig site by walking on elevated pathways.  These pathways are very tight and it is not very easy to maneuver a stroller through them.  The corners are tight and there is not enough space to let another visitor pass you if they are coming the opposite direction.  Some exhibits are only accessible via stairs.  You will be much better off carrying your baby in a wrap or carrier.

PARK GÜELL

Park Güell is a very interesting place with many different areas to explore.  Unfortunately, Park Güell is not completely stroller friendly, so if you bring a stroller you will be limited to where you can go.  The only paved pathways are the main artery and a few of the paths which lead off the main pathway.  If you wish to explore all the areas of the park, you will be better off bringing a wrap or carrier for your baby to this park.
