Barcelona metro

Map of the Barcelona metro

Barcelona's metro system consists of a comprehensive network of stations that make getting around Barcelona quick and easy.

The metro is run by TMB and the lines are colour-coded to make identification easier - L1, L2, L3, L4 and L5 and L11. In addition to the metro system there are 3 commuter lines operated by FGC, numbered L6, L7 and L8 and a funicular railway to Montju´c.

Access to the metro system is gained by inserting your ticket into the slot in the automatic turnstyles, although children under 5 can travel for free. The machine will validate your ticket and stamp the reverse of your ticket with the date and time.

There are several types of ticket available, from a single use card to multi-use, integrated transport cards. Tickets are available from the following outlets, although not all ticket types are available from every outlet:

  • TMB customer service centres
  • Metro ticket offices
  • Metro vending machines
  • Newsagent's kiosks
  • Lottery shops
  • Servicaixa machines (located in branches of La Caixa bank)
  • FCG railway stations
  • Barcelona Tourist Information Offices
