Paral·lel is a Barcelona metro station, located under Avinguda del Paral·lel, between Ronda de Sant Pau and Carrer Nou de la Rambla. It is served by L3, is the southern terminus of L2 and also the lower terminal of the Funicular de Montjuïc.

The station has two levels. The platforms for lines L2 and L3 are situated side by side at the lower level, with each line having a pair of side platforms. A direct connection is provided between the platforms for Zona Universitària (L3) and Pep Ventura (L2).

The funicular terminus is at the upper level, with side platforms on either side of the single terminal track. Transfers between the funicular and lines L2 and L3 are inside the ticket barriers of the station, and from a fare perspective the funicular is treated as another line of the metro.

The station used to be the interchange between L3 (towards Catalunya) and L3b (towards Sants), which were electrified in different ways (L3 by overhead catenary and L3b by a third rail), the current L2 platforms being served by L3b, and the station was called Puebloseco. The lines were unified in June 1982, when the station became known as Paral·lel (and the station previously known as Parlamento became known as Poble Sec).
