SINGAPORE, 23 August 2021: Turisme de Barcelona and Barcelona City Council, with EureCat as a technological partner, recently presented a new App that aims to avoid congestion in the different tourist spaces by offering other alternative visits.

Check Barcelona is the name of the new application, a guide to the city and its metropolitan and provincial environments with real-time information on occupation and availability of facilities, public spaces, beaches, availability of parking lots, and other places of tourist interest.

The objective of the new application is to provide the visitor with a tool that allows them to know, in real-time, the occupation status of the different spaces and manage the reservation following the established security and capacity protocols. In this way, by optimizing the visit, the degree of visitor satisfaction increases and improves the management of tourist areas and attractions with a high concentration of visitors. Up-to-date information on security protocols, mobility and other relevant aspects also contributes to the security of the visit.
