Urgell is a Barcelona Metro station, named after the Carrer del Comte d'Urgell, in the Eixample district of the city of Barcelona. The station is served by line L1.[1][2]

The station is located under the Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes between the Carrer del Comte d'Urgell and the Carrer de Villarroel. The station can be accessed from entrances on the Gran Via, the Comte d'Urgell and the Carrer de Villarroel. It has twin tracks, flanked by two 88-metre (289 ft) long side platforms.[1][3]

Urgell is one of the oldest metro stations in the city, as it is part of the first section of line L1 (then the Ferrocarril Metropolitano Transversal de Barcelona) between Catalunya and Bordeta stations, which was opened in 1926.[2][3]
