Barcelona Train Station Mini Guide

The Main Railway Hub of Barcelona
Sants Estacio or Sants Station is the main railway station of the city of Barcelona and is situated in the west of the city.  As well as being the largest main line station for destinations outside Barcelona it is also a hub for the city's metro lines L3 and L5 which are used by thousands of locals and tourists every day. A relatively new addition to the Sants transport services is the AVE – a high speed train which can take you from Barcelona to Madrid in 2 hours 40 minutes on the direct service or up to 3 hours 10 minutes with stops. To accommodate this, large parts of the station were remodelled.  It also has a direct train link with Barcelona El Prat Airport with trains running every 15 minutes.
