Facilities at Passeig de Gràcia Train Station

Page Content

Passeig de Gràcia Station is one of Barcelona's most central train stations. It consists of only two platforms and trains leaving the station only head as far as other parts of Catalunya. However, the station is linked to a total of three metro lines: the green, purple and yellow lines. It also sits right on Passeig de Gràcia - this is one of Barcelona's most important streets, leading directly from Plaza de Catalunya at the top of Las Ramblas. This makes it a convenient station if you are in Barcelona on holiday and would like to take a short trip to other parts of Barcelona or the surrounding region of Catalunya.
