As a rule of thumb you can estimate your transit time by counting the number of metro stops on your route and multiplying this number by 2 minutes. Include a waiting time of 5 minutes. If you need to change add an additional 5 minutes to your final value for each change.
e.g. to travel from Liceu (Green Line, L3) to Sagrada Familia (Blue Line, L5) there are 5 stops plus one change at Diagonal. Therefore total travel journey time is approximately is:
5 minutes (waiting at Liceu) + 10 minutes (2 minutes x 5 stops) +5 minutes (Change at Diagonal) = Total 20 minutes travel time.
