Route of the train from Cambrils to Barcelona

The train route from Barcelona stops at the neighbouring town of Salou - a useful place to stop if you are looking for some action and night-life (the town is renowned for its bar and club scene). It then stops at Port Aventura theme park - an adventure park large enough to have its own train station!


Tip You will note that the train stops at three different Barcelona stations. It is useful to have a think about which station will be best for you, depending on what you want to do first when you get to Barcelona. Barcelona Sants is Barcelona's largest train station. It offers routes to stations all over the rest of Spain and beyond. It is located the furthest uptown of the three stations - in a reasonably industrial area where there are a lot of conference centres and offices. Barcelona Passeig de Gracia is a station located on one of Barcelona's most affluent and impressive streets - Passeig de Gracia (Take a look at our Photo Guide to Passeig de Gracia). The street is well-known for both its modernist architecture and its designer shopping. It sits close to Plaza Catalunya - one of Barcelona's largest squares. Barcelona Estacio Franca is the station that sits closest to Barcelona beach. It also offers the quickest route into Barcelona's old town - it is a two minute walk to Barcelona's El Born (click here for a Insider Guide to El Born Neighbourhood).
