Line 8, shortened to L8 and coloured pink, is the name of a Barcelona Metro service operated by FGC, and part of the ATM fare-integrated transport system. It joins Plaça Espanya, in the Sants-Montjuïc district of Barcelona with metropolitan area municipalities of L'Hospitalet de Llobregat, Cornellà de Llobregat and Sant Boi de Llobregat.


The pink line, mostly underground, links Espanya, in Barcelona proper, with Sant Boi, through L'Hospitalet de Llobregat. It opened in 1912 as a train line (hence predating the first metro line 3 by 12 years), and was known as S3 until 2003, hence the name of its suburban extended line (S33). It's also part of the Llobregat-Anoia railway networks run by FGC, from which trains continue from Molí Nou | Ciutat Cooperativa onwards. There is also a freight-only branch line before Sant Boi station that connects to the Port of Barcelona.

An extension of the line further into central Barcelona, with a new station in Francesc Macià is being projected at the moment. It would link both the metro line and the Baix Llobregat line with Trambaix routes T1, T2 and T3 and the Vallès line in Gràcia station (termini).
