— Line 8, coloured pink and operated by FGC, is part of the Barcelona Metro network, and therefore of the larger 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 Plaça Espanya, in Barcelona proper, with Sant Boi de Llobregat, through L'Hospitalet de Llobregat. It opened in 1912 as a train line , and was known as S3 until 2003, hence the name of its suburban extended line . It's also part of the Llobregat-Anoia and Metro del Baix Llobregat 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.
