The Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya station was opened in 1882 and in this moment it was not an underground station, but it was located on the same place. In 1929 the current station was opened, under Balmes street and between Provença and Rosselló streets. Currently, it has two accesses from the street, one at each side of the station. In 1995 the hall was extended and some elevators were installed. This hall has some ticket vending machines and some shops. The Rosselló access was opened in 1970 to connect with TMB-operated Barcelona Metro stations and was extended and modernized in 2008.
