Glòries is a station in the Barcelona Metro and Trambesòs tram networks, at the boundary between the Eixample and Sant Martí districts of Barcelona. It is served by TMB line L1 and tram route T4 and T5. The station is named after the nearby Plaça de les Glòries Catalanes.

It was opened in 1951, when Line 1 was extended from Marina to Clot. It can be accessed from carrer d'Àlaba and Glòries. It is currently being adapted for disabled people. It will be connected to a future train station in the square, which will include access to L8.

It's also an important tram station, being the terminus of Trambesòs route T5 and part of T4.
