Barcelona has an extensive train network with different kinds of trains: long distance, middle-distance and short-distance.
You can reach any city in Catalonia and all over Spain from Barcelona, as well as many major European cities.
It is very common for locals to take the train during Summertime to explore the Catalan coast and reach the best beaches of both the Costa Brava (Girona direction) and Costa Dorada (Tarragona direction).
If you arrive to Barcelona by train we recommend you to get off at one of the main stations of the city: Plaza Catalunya, Paseo de Gracia or Sants station. These stations are very well connected and from there you can get around the city via public transport, metro or bus.
