Access and Accommodation

The Faculty of Physics of the University of Barcelona is not in the city center, but easily accessible by bus and underground (less than 30 min).

Map of the University:

Access

  • By Bus: Numbers: 7, 33, 67, 60, 74, 75, 113, L14, L51, L57, L61, L97, L101
  • By Subway: L3 Palau Reial station
  • By Train: RENFE
  • By Plane: Barcelona El Prat Airport

1. The cost of a taxi from the Airport is around 20-30 euros (depending on the Terminal) and takes about half an hour.

2. Alternatively, you can take the Aerobus shuttle from the Airport to Terminal 1 or Terminal 2 (every 10 min) to Espanya Square (or Catalunya Square) and afterwards catch the metro (green line, L3, every 5 min) up to Palau Reial stop (15 min journey). Cost 5,90 one way.

3. Still another alternative from the Airport, is the train departing from Terminal 2 every 30min (20 min journey). From Terminal 1 to Terminal 2 there is a free shuttle bus every 6-7 minutes (BusTransit). Get down at Barcelona-Sants stop and then take the metro (green line, L3, every 5 min) up to Palau Reial stop (15 min journey).
