The first railway station that existed in Passeig de Gràcia was built in 1902. The original station was not underground and lines were linked directly with the lines to Girona and Tarragona. In 1950s it was decided to build a new underground station and cover all the tracks along Aragó street. The work started in 1954 and the station was finished in 1959 as part of the Aragó Tunnel. It is planned to reform the railway station completely to make it more accessible and to improve its aspect.
