Travel Information

Final Destination: Salou-Port Aventura

These trains also depart from: Barcelona Franca and Passeig Di Gracia

These trains commence their journeys at Barcelona Franca station and then call at Passeig De Gracia station before they call at Barcelona Sants

Seats can't be reserved on these trains and in the summer, the morning departures in particular, tend to be very busy trains.

So if you'll be heading off to Port Aventura amusement park in the mornings avoid boarding these trains at Sants.

It's worth looking up this journey on the Renfe website, even if you don't want to buy tickets online, as there can be gaps of up to two hours between departures.

In summer, trains, which allow a full day at the park, depart from:

Barcelona Franca at 09:43 and 10:43

Passeig di Gracia at 09:54 and 10:54

Barcelona Sants at 10:03 and 11:03
At Sants station these trains usually depart from vias (tracks/platforms) 9 and 10.

up to 12 x trains per day


Book early and save: No

Tickets for journeys by Regional Express trains aren't normally sold online on the Renfe (Spain's national rail operator) website, but SOME of these trains to Port Aventura are an exception to that rule.

You won't save any money by booking the tickets online, but you will save the time and stress of trying to book tickets against the clock, at the stations in Barcelona.
The most popular departures tend to be the ones that are available online.

Though you won't be guaranteeing seats by booking in advance online, reservations aren't available on these trains.
