About the station

Our guide to using Barcelona Sants train station points out what to look out for when arriving and departing by train.

It also explains how to make the transfer between Sants station and both Barcelona city centre and El Prat airport by train.

There is no getting away from the fact Barcelona Sants is a long way from the top of any ‘Europe’s Most Beautiful Train Stations’ list.
From the exterior the station resembles a factory with a  office block perched on top of it.

You can be less than a 5 min walk from Sants station and not realise it’s in front of you.
That’s because all the platforms/tracks/vias which the trains depart from, are below ground.

Once you’re on the main concourse at Barcelona Sants you need to see through the crowds and pay close attention to the signs.

On the whole they are excellent and help make sense of what can be an initially bewildering space.

The main concourse is permanently busy.
