Encants car park added to the B:SM network
The car park is located on Carrer Castillejos number 158, under the Encants-Bellcaire Market
The Encants car park, located on Carrer Castillejos 158, under the market itself, has an area of 8,042 m2 on a single floor, and has 277 spaces for cars, including four handicapped spaces, 79 spaces for motorbikes and 10 for bicycles.
This car park is owned by the municipality and since June has been part of the network of 43 car parks managed by the company Barcelona de Serveis Municipals. Encants is the fourth car park at Barcelona’s outside markets managed by B:SM, which also includes the car parks at Sagrada Família, La Boqueria and Guinardó. The car park at the Sant Antoni Market will soon be added as well.
B:SM plans to implement some improvements, such as electric vehicle charging points, spaces for electric cars and motorbikes and free lockers.
The Encants car park will be used by market workers and stall owners, the neighbours of El Fort Pienc area of the Eixample district, as well as by people visiting the market and the cultural venues nearby. Users can opt between the different payment methods that B:SM offers for sedans, such as full 24 hour parking, daytime or evening parking, or temporary with prepaid cards (for 25, 50 and 100 hours), multiple day cards (1, 3, 5 and 7 days) and hourly tokens for the businesses in the area. Likewise, 24 hour payment plans will be offered for motorbikes and bicycles.
Management of this car park was entrusted to B:SM by the Barcelona City Council, via the agreement made by the Government Committee in its ordinary meeting of 25 May 2017.
