Platform in the Estación de Francia (France Station).

In the WS: a wider view of the platforms

The ESTACIÖN DE FRANCIA, formerly called Barcelona-term, is one of the ADIF railway stations in Barcelona and the second after Sants in terms of traffic of medium and long distance. Out of it almost all the Catalan regional lines and some long-haul services.

The Estación de Francia was built by architects Pedro Muguruza and Fernando Gallego Herrera, while the lobby was the work of Raimon Duran i Reynals, and was inaugurated by King Alfonso XIII in 1929. It is a building with an iron structure built in Art Nouveau style between 1925 and 1929. It was one of the last stations in Europe built in this style and is currently the only one in the city of Barcelona known for its historic and artistic character.
