Lost Property at Barcelona Airport deal with objects that you have lost whilst at the airport, rather than luggage that may have been lost during transit. The lost property department is not simply a desk within Barcelona Airport itself; it is located in a separate and secure building.

If you are still at Barcelona Airport it is best to go to the Lost Property department in 'Bloque Tecnico' (see below for where this is located). The person at the gate will ask why you wish to enter the building. They may not speak English so it is best to state 'objetos perdidos'. You will be asked to describe your lost object (see below for the hours when there are multilingual staff at lost property) and will only be allowed into the building if they have found your lost object and that you have proof of identification (passport or NIE certificate).
If you have already left the airport, you will need to telephone the number below. Describe what you have lost and they will check whether they have it. If they find your object you will be given a reference number. When you go to pick up your item you should bring this reference number, along with personal identification (passport or NIE certificate). You will need to pick up your object form 'Bloque Técnico' (see below for directions). If you are no longer in Barcelona you can send somebody else to pick up your item for you (see below for how to do this).
If you are no longer in Barcelona and cannot pick up your lost item yourself, the only other option that you have is to have somebody else pick up the item for you. You must provide authorization that this person can pick up your property.

If not, then ensure that you persevere and do not let anybody let you feel as though the task is an inconvenience.
