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
