Please download the app Barcelona Metro, in order to see clearly the map and have that with you as you move around Barcelona. Having the map at hands is very useful to have it downloaded on your phone once you are in Barcelona.

If you can't download it, I am sure you can get a Barcelona's Metro map brochure from any station.


A metro ticket or any public transport card is valid for any journey by metro, bus, tram or ferrocarril.

You can buy individual tickets at the ticket machines. 

You can also buy a T-Casual card which allows you to make ten trips on all lines of the network for a price of 11.35 euros.

Taking the metro to and from the airport you must buy an airport metro ticket
