Great station for arriving at the water front and the more interesting areas of Barcelona like Las Ramblas. Quiet and seemingly lesser used. Not as fancy as others but much more useful. In the process of renovation and already looking good.

Beautiful station centrally located near the foot of La Rambla. Worth a quick visit to see the main lobby and the huge glass-roofed train shed, which is currently undergoing renovations.

From a distance, we were certain this is a deserted station as its roof seemed to be falling apart - literally. Getting closer to it, we noticed parts of it are fenced off, but to our surprise this turned out to be a rather central...More

The building is grand. The information about travel is a bit scarce, making it necessary to go to the information desk. They were helpful.

In Short we flew to Barcelona and our final destination was Cambrills. A lot of people on here talk about Reus Airport. For us that wasn't an option so the easiest way we found as a family with children was to get a direct train...More

There seems to be something going on here most nights. Parties, events, vendors events selling homemade clothes, soaps, food etc The only down side, it's loud and our room was across the way.

Really beautiful spot in the Estació del Nord train station. Huge space and classic decoration. Good service and excellent food. Really interesting daily menu. The only thing I would say is that the courses had not much food... they would rather increase the amount of...More

This easy to be missed attraction is definitely worth a quick visit - gigantic halls and the main station remind of the XIX century and the best times of rail. It used to connect Spain and France by rail, is still in operation by the...More

I finally entered after passing countless times. I love the architecture and imagining ladies in fine hats with their luggage years ago. It's nice to escape the sun. Recommend it if you're in the neighbourhood!

This is a beautiful station and a way to avoid the pick pockets at Sants. Its the end of the line so you either board or leave a train in a dignified fashion. No hustle or bustle....pretty refined. You can go Renfe to your destination....More

Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area
can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging
over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each
other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing
games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away,
Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line
the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed
sand structures making this the most visited beach in

I think you have to go to Sants train stations for traveling to Salou. Do not hesitate to check the trains and schedules in the RENFE official website.
