Espanya is a Barcelona Metro lines 1, 3 and 8 and Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya (FGC) commuter train station located in under one of the city's largest squares, Plaça Espanya, in the Sants-Montjuïc district of Barcelona. Espanya is one of the most important stations of the Barcelona Metro network.

Not far from satellite cities south of the municipality of Barcelona proper, such as L'Hospitalet de Llobregat, Plaça Espanya is one of the metropolitan area's busiest transport hubs, and is linked with a number of day and night bus services in addition to the underground metro and train lines.

It was built in 1929 as part of the first metro line in the city, now numbered line 3, projected on occasion of the 1929 World's Fair, and was closed in 1975, when it moved to a nearby location under the square. The original station was reconverted then into a ticket hall and shopping area, and is no longer used. It is currently served by the already mentioned line 3, line 1 and line 8.

The following FGC suburban lines also serve Plaça Espanya: S33, S4 and S8. The station appears listed as Barcelona - Plaça Espanya in all the FGC lines, which use different naming conventions since they cover several municipalities in the metropolitan area and a more detailed location is often necessary. And in addition to these, the following FGC urban Rodalies (commuter train) lines: R5, R6.
