Getting To The Estadi Cornella El Prat
Estadi Cornella El Prat is around 30- 45 minutes away from the city centre depending upon the traffic and although outside the centre of Barcelona, transport links are very good. However you decide to get there, whether it be metro, tram, bus or taxi, read on for the low down on getting to a match.
The nearest airport is Barcelona el Prat and is situated around 8kms away from the stadium. It takes around 11 minutes to travel from door to door but this does depend upon the traffic, which can get quite busy. The airport itself has great transport links and low cost carriers such as Vueling and Spanair all base themselves here. On top of this, other low cost carriers such as Ryan Air also fly into here on a regular basis.
Transport from the airport to the Estadi Cornella El Prat is plentiful and cheap. For example a metro from the airport to the stadium will be around €2.50 one way, a bus is around the €2.00 mark and a taxi is around €12-15. The taxi is the most convenient way to travel but it’s also the most expensive. If you are not pushed for time, then the tram, bus or metro are by far the cheaper option.
Take the metro blue line 5 from the city centre to station Cornella centre. From here it is about a 10-15 minute walk from the metro stop to the stadium. You can get here from the city centre for a cost of under €2.50, one way
The train line also travels close to the stadium and is a probably a quicker option. Take the Llobregat to Anoia line from the city centre (station Espanya) and get off at the station Cornella Riera. Again it’s around a 10 minute walk from the stop. The cost is about €2.70 one way
From the Plaza Catalunya in the city centre look out for bus numbers 67 or 68 which stop pretty much right outside the stadium itself. Just ask for the stadium when you board, or alternatively you can buy your ticket from the ticket machines located in the city centre. The cost of a bus is around €2.00 depending on where you leave from.
A taxi from the city centre should cost around the €15.00 mark and should certainly be no more than €20.00 depending upon where you are coming from. In general the easily recognised yellow and black taxis are excellent here, but be warned that there are always the odd few who will try to squeeze as much money out of you as possible. For this reason it’s always best to agree a price before you step inside and know roughly what the journey should cost you.

At 10.5 kms from the city centre it is really too far to walk. Transport links are great in and around Barcelona so why not take advantage of them.
Cornella-El Prat is the newest stadium in all of La Liga and perhaps the newest of all the significant soccer stadiums in all of the world. It is the brand new home of Espanyol and the eigth home that Espanyol has had total which must be an La Liga record. Espanyol was solid last season with a tenth place finish it was also their fifteenth straight year on the top level of Spanish football.
Cornella-El Prat has been a long running project and it took over four years to finish the new stadium located in Catalonia. The stadium has a capacity crowd of around 40,000 which is among the bigger stadiums in La Liga. In fact it is the fifth largest stadium in capacity in La Liga and with all the new stadium features that were added it might arguably be the most comfortable place in La Liga to watch a match.
Among these upgrades Espanyol decided to focus their attention on the key modern day money maker: Luxery boxes. The stadium features a VIP club section that makes up around 1,200 seats and also around 40 luxery suites for the big wigs and big spenders.
The stadium also focused on many practical additions as well including a handicapped accesible section and there even thousands of facility parking spaces, but one of the most impressive additions was perhaps the 27 bars located inside the venue. Cornella-El Prat offers all of the luxuries that a season ticket holder could ever dream of.
