About Franca Railway Station Barcelona

Views: 375. Updated: Sep 28, 2021 by: Barcelona Travel Hacks

A railway station was first built here in the 19th century as the main terminus for trains arriving from France and for services to North East Catalonia and the Costa Brava. Rebuilt and reopened for the 1929 International Exhibition, the two monumental buildings that make up the station were designed by the architect Pedro Muguruza and inaugurated by King Alfonso XIII.

The station was closed for renovation between from 1988 and 1992, reopening for the Olympic Games of 1992. It is generally seen as the city's most beautiful station being the last of the surface mainline stations. Nowdays the Station is suffering from passenger decline due to international and long-distance trains now passing through Sants and there are plans to cease rail services to this station.
