Metro to Parc Guell

Hello,

we will be arriving on a cruise ship for the day. We want to go to Parc Guell. So, starting at the Monument of Christopher Columbus, what Metro should we take and where we should get off?

Then, if from Parc Guell we want to go to Placa de Espayna, what metro/stop should we use?

Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated.

You can take the L3 line from Drassanes to either Lesseps or Vallcarca, then walk uphill. Details and a metro map in this Top Question: tripadvisor.co.uk/Travel-g187497-c153886/Bar…

From Park Guell to Plaça Espanya, you could take the L3 line in the opposite direction all the way. With only 1 day in town, Pl Espanya would NOT be on my list of Must See's. What are you planning to do there?

Thanks for the info! We had visited Barcelona for a couple of days a couple of yrs ago and we were trying to do what we didn't do then.

One question - based on the info we have read so far we could get off at Lesseps or Vallcarca metro stops. Any insight as to which one should we chose or does it matter?

thanks in advance for the comments!

I prefer Vallcarca.. Take the AvenIda de Vallcarca exit from metro then take the next left after carrer des medes which is Baixida de la Gloria so you can go up the hill via escalotors. Sure I have spelt road names wrong but you'll get the jist!

The Top Question linked above includes specific info about exiting from the Vallcarca station and finding the outdoor escalator.
