"Yes, that is a complex sentence.

It is because it is composed of one dependent clause and one independent clause. The dependent clause there is ""Although she left her house early"" and the independent clause there is ""Maria barely made it to the train station in time"".

The word ""although"" there is a subordinating conjunction. In the definition of the complex sentence, the dependent clause and the independent clause is joined by a subordinating conjunction."
