I made a daytrip to Girona from Barcelona. My guidebook said trains were leaving from Barcelona Sants Station so I took the metro there from Passeig de Gràcia. I bought a return ticket for 12.10 Euro and took the next train leaving (9.25). Guess if I was surprised when the train 5 minutes later stopped at Passeig de Gràcia, the station I had started from. Well, at least I now knew I could go off there when I returned.
The train between Barcelona and Girona took 1 h 15 min, but some of the trains that stop more often takes 1 h 30 min.
In Girona it is not far to walk from the train station to the old part of town. On the way I stopped at the tourist office and got a timetable for the trains back to Barcelona. I took the 18.28 train back, but had then waited for over half an hour as I didn’t notice that the train leaving 17.56 only were running on Sundays.
