Sagrada Família

Gaudí station

Gaudi is an underground station of the Barcelona metro that has never been in use. It is located between the L5‘s stations Sagrada Família and Sant Pau | Dos de Maig, under Gaudí avenue.

On the upper level, there is the headquarters of the associations of retired workers of Transports Metropolitans de Barcelona, the Barcelona’s public transport company. The underground entrance is located at the corner between 299 Lepant street and 22 Gaudí avenue.

The station was built for line 2 in the 60s, before opening this part builded for L2 was joint and transfered to line 5. With that change, Sagrada Família was too closed to Gaudí, so it was closed and never used.

Even so, it is the best preserved disused station of Barcelona. The city council has used the station to make statistical studies of passing trains, and also there were filmed advertisements. Both platforms have a length of 94 meters and it is decorated with brown marble and gray terrazzo.
