Barcelona Metro iPhone app features include:

  • Latest official map of Metro de Barcelona (2009). Landscape and portrait modes are available.
  • Detailed map of all lines in Barcelona (Línea 1, Línea 2, Línea 3, Línea 4, Línea 5, Línea 6, Línea 7, Línea 8, Línea 11, S1, S2, S33, S4, S5, S55, S8, R1, R2, R2 Nord, R2 Sud, R3, R4, R5, R6, R7, T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6). Read the rest of this article…
