Gràcia is a railway station located under Plaça de Gal·la Placídia in the Gràcia district of Barcelona. It is served both by lines L6 and L7 of the Barcelona Metro, and by lines S1, S2, S5 and S55 of the Metro del Vallès commuter rail system. All these lines are operated by Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya, who also run the station.[1][2]

The station is also expected to become part of L8 in the future with the planned extension of that line from Espanya metro station, and would become a junction station for the three FGC Barcelona Metro lines in operation in the city.[3]

Gràcia station should not be confused with Passeig de Gràcia station, which is located some 1.7 kilometres (1.1 mi) away on metro lines L2, L3 and L4, and various Rodalies de Catalunya suburban lines.
