Barcelona Metro L2

Purple Line: Paral.lel-Badalona Pompeu Fabra

Barcelona Metro L2 is a relatively new line, which only opened in 1995.

It runs from Barcelona City Centre through Sant Adrià de Besós out to Badalona, which were poorly served by the metro network until quite recently.

Important Purple Line stops in the city centre include Universitat, Passeig de Gràcia, Sagrada Familia and Clot.

There are 18 stations on Metro L2 and the line covers a distance of 13.7 km.

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.
