That's a tangenziale, not a real ring road (i.e. a full loop that functions as such).

I'd never want to live in Barcelona, though. Extremely claustrophobic city, almost no urban empty space, it feels cramped and vastly overpopulated for its area.

It's quite obvious to me, but in Italian they're both called a "tangenziale". In English, you could specify a bypass, or a ring road/loop/beltway.

I didn't know Barcelona had a full ring road, I thought you were referring to the AP7 encircling the western edge of the city.

To me the only difference is in denomination. In Spain they use to call "motorway" roads that in Italy would be simply called "road"
Brescia tangenziale is 2x3 + emergency, wider and safer than most motorways around Europe I drove on, but it is not contemplated as such, it is not even a SS road.

However I see your point now.

Yes, the B10 along the coast is in fact "buried" under street level. When you walk on the seaside you'll never realize there is a motorway below.
Interesting, the B22 from the airport to the centre is signed on GM as normal road, while in reality is a 2x3 autovia (toll-free motorway).

Frightening and amazing at the same time. Even if I would never do a crazy thing like that, I can't stop watching it
