Atocha Station - Review

Railway stations make for curious tourist attractions – they are largely just functional, but with the passage of time, gain a sense of history and romance… the sense of having witnessed many journeys. This station, the first one in Spain, has stories to tell too: a first original station that was destroyed by fire, and the second, which bears a monument to honor the victims of a terrorist attack on March 11, 2004. It’s weathered everything though – a 1985 expansion transformed the old terminal into a delightful rest area with loads of entertainment and shopping options.

The Atocha station really stands out, because despite being a steel and iron wrought structure (which tend to be dark), the interiors are warmly lit up everyday. Architecture and photography fans can’t get enough of it. Give the memorial a visit too.

Though it might surprise you that a railway station can be a popular attraction, the Atocha Station in Madrid is in fact one of the popular spots in the city.

Atocha Station, Madrid Reviews

  • Convenient to the city (and to/from anywhere you want to go in Spain from the capital) Atocha is like most train stations anywhere in the world: no matter how great they are it’s best when you’re on the seat on the right train going to the right city. This wasn’t complicated but two things to focus on: 1) don’t confuse the subway stop for the main train session; and 2) remember you need to go through security. I had a good experience but I saw a lot of people on other trains who were scrambling because they thought they’d be waking onto the train. Do yourself a favor (if you’re not familiar already) and get there early, get through security... and then get your cappuccino.

  • Extremely rude customer service help desk; ironic isn’t it? If you’re a help desk you’re supposed to help people, because that’s your job. I tried communicating with the lady using google translate and she didn’t want to cooperate. I actually needed help and your refused to give me any.

  • It is the heart of the Madrid city. We can travel to any part from this station. Also the tour bus stop is at 2 minutes walking distance from where you can get the Madrid city ride buses

  • Awesome station.very beautiful garden.It is really grand and huge station.You feel you have entered a beautiful garden.We had a good time to look around with very nice place to shop and eat.Always look forward to go back there.Madrid is very old beautiful city.

  • If you're a keen photographer, this is worth an hour of your time.
