Public transport in Barcelona

Barcelona has a large and well connected network of public transport, including metro, bus, tram, and regional trains*. We think using public transport in Barcelona is the best way for moving around the city, and here you have some tips about it:

*If you walk around the city you will see many stations of public bikes. These bikes are only available to people living in Barcelona though. There are many private companies for bike and scooter rentals, which you can find with an easy search online.

How to get to the venue in the UAB

The second and third days of the symposium will take place at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB). Its campus is not located in the city of Barcelona, but in a beautiful mountaneous area outside of the neighbouring town of Cerdanyola del Vallès. The venue for SoMoS is the Sala de Graus, at the building of the Facultat de Filosofia i Lletres. To get there from Barcelona we suggest you follow this way:

Lunch at the UAB

During our two days at the UAB we won't have time to go to Barcelona or any neighbouring town for lunch. But there are different options to have lunch on the UAB campus

How to get to Barcelona?

Barcelona is a very well connected city and the there are many options to get there:

Where to stay?

Barcelona has a huge offer of accommodation options. Here we suggest some options just because of their convenience for accessing the symposium's venues. Barcelona is very well connected with the city's public transport system, so access to the UPF should not be problematic from any location in the Eixample and Sant Martí districts. The UAB is located in a neighbouring town, Cerdanyola del Vallès, well connected with trains with Barcelona. There are two railways stations in Barcelona city center, one at Plaça Catalunya and one at Provença, both of them easily accessible from locations in the Eixample district. Most of the accommodation options suggested here were selected for being close to either of these stations.
