The Calella train station is the station of the city of Calella on the Costa del Maresme . It is owned by the infrastructure authority Administrador de Infraestructuras Ferroviarias (Adif) and is served by local and long-distance trains operated by RENFE .


The station was put into operation in 1859 at the same time as the Arenys de Mar - Tordera section of the Barcelona – Mataró – Maçanet-Massanes line. In 1992 it was renovated. The single-track line between Arenys de Mar and Blanes will be expanded to double-track by 2018. From January 2014 to April 2015, the station was connected to the Spanish long-distance network.


Long-distance transport

Since January 8, 2014, the Estrella Costa Brava night train has been running once a week from Madrid Chamartín via Madrid Atocha , Sants , Girona and Figueres stations to Cerbère and just as frequently from Portbou back to Madrid Chamartín, stopping in Calella. The connection was discontinued in April 2015.

Regional traffic

Rodalies Barcelona

The station is connected to the Rodalies Barcelona network every half hour . Every half hour there are trains on the R1 line via Mataró and Barcelona-Sants to L'Hospitalet de Llobregat , one of the two trains per hour runs in Calella, the other continues to Blanes or Maçanet-Massanes. The western end point of the R1, Molins de Rei , can only be reached with two daily trips during the morning rush hour without having to change trains.

Rodalies Girona

As of March 24, 2014, RENFE will be offering a train route L'Hospitalet de Llobregat – Figueres via Calella to offer a direct connection from the train stations on the Costa Maresme to Figueres and to connect the towns to the AVE train station in Girona. In addition, with this introduction, the change in Maçanet-Massanes is no longer necessary, so that the regional express trains Barcelona – Granollers – Cerbère / Portbou are relieved. These trains run every two hours and are integrated into the R1 cycle between Maçanet – Massanes and L'Hospitalet.
