Europa | Fira is a railway and metro station on the Llobregat–Anoia Line. It is located underneath Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, near Plaça d'Europa and Carrer d'Amadeu Torner, in the L'Hospitalet de Llobregat municipality, to the south-west of Barcelona, in Catalonia, Spain. Opened on 13 May 2007 (2007-05-13), it was due to be named Amadeu Torner, in reference to the street of the same name. The station can be accessed from both sidewalks of Gran Via, serving as a major public transport access to the Gran Via business center. It is served by Line 8, Line 9, Baix Llobregat Metro lines S33, S4 and S8, and commuter rail lines R5, R6, R50 and R60.

Barcelona Metro line 9 (designated L9 Sud) started services at the station on February 12, 2016,[2] when the line's 20-kilometre-long (12 mi), 15-station portion between Barcelona–El Prat Airport and Zona Universitària station in western Barcelona opens for passenger service.[3]
