Public Transportation to the Venue

Located just three kilometres from Barcelona’s historic city centre, Fira Barcelona Gran Via is ideally situated in a newly redeveloped business district. The local public transport network conveniently links the expansive and modern venue to both the metropolitan downtown and nearby El Prat International Airport (12 km).

Line 9 Sud runs from the airport to Fira Gran Via, and into the city of Barcelona. It connects with three other major Metro lines, so nearly every area of city has a simpler way to get to Fira Gran Via. The main station in the venue is called Fira.


Another option near North Access is the metro stop called “Foc” from the line L10.
