(Redirected from Disused Barcelona Metro stations)
There are a number of disused stations in the Barcelona Metro network, abandoned for various reasons. This is a comprehensive list:
|Station||Old line number||Current line||Opened||Closed||Area||District||Notes||Reference|
|Bordeta||FMT||L1||1926||1983||La Bordeta||Sants-Montjuïc||It was closed as it was deemed unnecessary being too close to Santa Eulàlia.|||
|Correos||Line I||L4||1934||1972||Via Laietana||Ciutat Vella||The best known among the disused metro stations in the city, it was part of the aforementioned former L4 section.|||
|Fernando||GMB||L3||1946||1968||La Rambla||Ciutat Vella||Belongs to a section of the line which was closed when L3 expanded into the area and L4 started growing in another direction. It was replaced by Drassanes.|||
|Station||Old line number||Current line||Built||Area||District||Notes||References|
|Banco||Line I||L4||1911||Via Laietana||Ciutat Vella||It was built in the area known nowadays as Plaça d'Antonio Maura, the seat of the headquarters of a few banks, but was never opened too public use. In 1925 it became the line's depot, and it may have also been used by the banking institutions.|||
|Gaudí||Line II||L5||1968||Sagrada Família||Eixample||The station was next to Sagrada Família and was an early project for what would eventually become the current Sagrada Família metro station. It can be seen at times from the carriage at the station, when there's enough lighting, as it's at 11.65m. under the surface.|||
|Travessera||Line I||L3||Never built||Gran de Gràcia||Gràcia||Located between Diagonal and Fontana, around Travessera de Gràcia, it was envisioned as a midpoint between these two stations, which were deemed to be too far from each other, but it was never built.|||
