Getting Barcelona by Train

"El Prat" (Barcelona's airport) has its own train station. While this is convenient for those traveling further afield by train (the journey finishes at Sants, the city's major terminal which also has connections to the Metro) the station itself is a short walk from the airport terminal, which makes it inconvenient for those with lots of luggage. Trains leave every 30 minutes from 6:15am to 11:40pm, and the 25-minute journey costs 2.50€ ($2.90).

In the same way, there are direct trains to Barcelona from Paris (11 hours and a quarter), Montpellier (4 hours and a half), Milan (13 hours and a quarter) and Zurich (13 hours). There are eight daily departures to Madrid (journey time – 8 hours), including three sleeper services.

Estació Central-Sants, located in Plaça del Països Catalans (tel: (93) 495 6215) is the city’s main railway station, serving national and international destinations as well as suburban routes. Estació de França, located on Avenida Marqués de l’Argentera, offers mainly southbound regional services. Another railway stations is Passeig de Gràcia station, located close to Plaça de Catalunya and La Rambla.
