Type of plugs used in Barcelona

European 2 pin plug

What type of plugs are used in Barcelona?

As in the rest of Spain, the type of plug used in Barcelona is the 2 pin socket.

If you’re coming from a country where another system is used, it’s always a good idea to bring your own current adaptor.

Electric supply system

In Spain, the electricity supply is 220 volts. In Ireland and UK they use 240 volts, but most of the electric devices that work with 220 will work with 24o volts too.

Traveling around Europe? No problem!

This type of plug is also used in the rest of Europe. An exception is made with the  UK (dear English people, why do you always do differently?).
