Barcelona Regional Trains - Rodalies RENFE
Barcelona has a very good network of regional lines, known as Rodalies, that will take you to various places in the metropolitan area of Barcelona
and other towns in Catalonia
Most of the regional trains are identified with an R sign at the Barcelona Sants Estació main train station, but Barcelona also has other train stations dotted throughout the city, such as Estació de França, Catalunya, Passeig de Gràcia, Sant Andreu Arenal, Sant Andreu Comtal, Arc de Triomf, El Clot and Sagrera-Meridiana that can be more convenient depending on where you are located and where you want to go.
RENFE, the Spanish train company, provides regular and efficient train services from the Sants Estació in Barcelona to other places in Spain or Europe.
For those arriving in Barcelona by plane or flying back home, there are frequent services to and from Barcelona Airport
