This is not your average train station full of escalators and plastic. The 'French Station' (located on Av. Marquès de l'Argentera) is a product of the 1929 Barcelona International Exposition and the second largest station in Barcelona after Sants. Some compare it to the Paris Orsay Station for its grandeur and elegance. You can admire the vast metal arches, a fine example of cast-iron architecture, full of light and space. While the lobby, by Duran Reynals in the Noucentisme style, today hosts a variety of activities, such as second-hand fairs.
