The lost property office
Did you take a taxi and leave something inside? Or got home and realized you had dropped something on the street? Contact Barcelona Lost Property Office! All lost and found items in Barcelona that have been handed in to the police will end up in the Lost Property Office.
To claim lost cellphones or cameras you will need a serial number and for lost ID cards or passports you will need an identification number to prove it’s yours. Around 7 out of 10 items that are delivered to Barcelona Lost Property Office are returned to their owner.
If you loose your debit or credit card call the emergency number of your card issuing company immediately and let them block the lost card so no one else can use them. The card company can quickly send out new credit cards and even address them to be delivered directly to your hotel. You should also contact the police, even if they are only able to get your things back in a handful of cases. High crime statistics have recently moved some city administration officials to implement more security.
If you loose your visa, please contact the Visa Centre. It is important to let the police know about such situations as well.
Don’t hesitate to call the Lost Property Office if you have lost something. They are available over the phone from 08.00 to 00.00!
