How to arrive from downtown by train

From Hotel Turin, it takes a bit more than 1 hour door-to-door to get to the workshop venue (time to get to the train station, buy the ticket, catch a train, etc.). So we advice workshop participants to leave the hotel at 8:15 at the latest on Friday, Feb. 4.
  1. Go to the nearest Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya train station (Plaça Catalunya, Provença, Gràcia,...). The nearest station to the hotel of the workshop is Catalunya: see map
  2. Take the train signalled as "Sabadell" (S2) or "Universitat Autònoma" (S55).
  3. Get off the train at "Universitat Autònoma"
