Barcelona Street is a north-south street in Pensacola. The street is named for the Spanish city of Barcelona.

Barcelona Street's northern terminus is at West Maxwell Street near Pensacola High School. From there Reus travels southerly uninterrupted to West Chase Street. Historically, Barcelona Street extended south to the Bay, but now is preempted by a realigned South Spring Street.

British Pensacola[edit]

In British Pensacola, what is now Barcelona Street was called Johnstone Street, named for George Johnstone, the British colonial governor.[1]
