History[edit]

FGC[edit]

The Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya station was opened in 1882 and in this moment it was not an underground station, but it was located on the same place. In 1929, the current station was opened, under Balmes street and between Provença and Rosselló streets. Currently, it has two accesses from the street, one at each side of the station. In 1995, the hall was extended and some elevators were installed. This hall has some ticket vending machines and some shops. The Rosselló access was opened in 1970 to connect with TMB-operated Barcelona Metro stations and was extended and modernized in 2008.

Barcelona Metro[edit]

  • Barcelona Metro line 5 station was opened in 1969 with the opening of the line between this station and Collblanc. The station is located under Rosselló street, near Rambla Catalunya. It has two halls, one at each side of the station and they are equipped with some ticket vending machines, a TMB information center and a bar. There are two long corridors, one to connect with Barcelona Metro line 3 station and the other one to connect with FGC metro station.
