Barcelona Metro L8

Plaça Espanya-Molí Nou-Ciutat Cooperativa

Barcelona Metro L8 opened in 1912 and links Plaça Espanya in Barcelona proper with the munipalities of Hospitalat, Cornellà and Sant Boi de Llobregat to the south of the city.

The line is part of the Llobregat-Anoia and Metro del Baix Llobregat railway networks and is operated by Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya (FGC).

There are plans to extend the line to Barcelona City Centre at Plaça Francesc Macià and so connect with lines L6 and L7.

Buying Tickets

You can buy single journey tickets and a variety of travel cards, including the excellent value T10, in the machines in the FGC entrances.

However, if you are visiting for a few days, it is well-worth investing in a Barcelona Card, which not only gives you full access to the Barcelona integrated transport system, including metro, buses, trams, ferrocarrils but also discounts on Barcelona museums and tourist sights as well as in some shops and restaurants.
