"In Barcelona there are three..." Barcelona Transportation Tip by gasca

Barcelona Transportation: 625 reviews and 528 photos

In Barcelona there are three main transport networks, TMB, FGC (Ferrocarrils Generalitat de Catalunya, regional train company) and RENFE.

<b>TMB</b> is the Metro company.

<b>FGC</b> has some lines that cover specific destinations in an area of 50 km.

<b>RENFE</b> is the national railway company, and has a regional subnetwork (Cercanias or Rodalies in catalan) that operates in all Catalonia.

FGC is the best way (and in some cases the only one) to get to some site seeing places like Montserrat mountain.

<b>To go to Montserrat</b> it may interest you line R5.
You will need to take a funicular too.
R5 line starts on Espanya metro station.

<b>To go to Sitges</b>, the best way is to use RENFE network.
A place to take this line is Sants-Estacio Metro Station.
