FEATURED HOTELS - SANTS STATION AREA
Sants (also known as Estació de Sants) is the name of the main

capital's most important transportation hub - being the centre of commuter

main inter-city train station for national and international destinations.
The station is named after Sants, the neighbourhood of Barcelona in which
it is located. New parts of the station have recently been reformed on
the occasion of the introduction of the Spanish high-speed train AVE in
the city, which took place on 20 February 2008. There is also an adjacent
