Public transport to Sangrada Familia

Sorry if this question has been asked before. We are visiting Barcelona on a cruise and wish to visit Sangrada Familia by ourselves. We do not want to use the hop on hop off buses so how is the best way to get there using public transport . Also how much time should we allow to get there as would like to pre book our tickets . Thank you

Hi, by public transport you need metro line 3 from Drassanes to Passeig de Gràcia, and in passeig de gràcia transfer to line 2 and get off in Sagrada Familia. Is gonna take like half an hour, 45 minutes, because first from the port to Drassanes metro station you have to take a bus called "Portbus".

It is better to continue on line 3 to Diagonal, and switch there to line 5 to Sagrada Familia. The connection at Passeig de Gràcia involves a long and boring underground walk.

Rule of thumb: ride is 3 minutes between stations, frequency is 5 minutes between one train and the next and when having to switch lines using underground corridors, allot at least 10 minutes since some are fairly short but others are long and boring as Laia says.

Now take the metro map: http://bit.ly/BCNmetromap and do your maths :)))
