It takes approximately 25 minutes to reach our Institut on Paseo Manuel Girona 16 from the El Prat-Barcelona airport in a taxi.
You also have the possibility to take the train from El Prat’s Terminal 2 until Estación de Sants (Sants station). There you can transfer to metro line 3 (green), in direction Zona Universitaria until the stop María Cristina. This will take approximately one hour, depending on the waiting time for the different means of transportation.
Another option are Aerobusses that depart from all El Prat airport terminals to Plaza España and Plaza Cataluña.
