Travelling in Spain
The Spanish National Railway Network (RENFE) connects all the provincial capitals with Madrid, and is operating more and more high speed (AVE) trains. Furthermore, there are also long-distance services and trains between different nearby cities.
Here you can see the AVE (high speed) services currently in operation. They will take you to your destination in a maximum of three hours.

An original option to see Spain by train is the so-called tourist train. Here is information on some of them:
The "Transcantábrico" : A train "cruise" through the north of Spain. From Santiago de Compostela (Galicia) to León (Castile-León).
The La Robla express offers tours through northern Spain in a period train
Al-Ándalus Train: A “palace” on rails – for discovering Andalusia on a luxury train.
There are also one-day tourist train routes, such as:
The strawberry train: a pleasant family excursion in the Region of Madrid, on a historic train that takes you as far as Aranjuez.
Sóller Train: an early 20th-century train that covers inland Majorca (Balearic Islands).
Cervantes Train: a literary train journey to Alcalá de Henares, the town where the author of Don Quixote was born.
