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.

Great place and friendly staff. Lot of options. Just be there early so that u won't miss the train due to security checks which takes at least 20minutes. I hope that they extend their trains till late nights....
It was a pleasure for us to have safe and smooth travel. Got here early in the morning around 5 am and took a train from Madrid to Granada.
Busy train station in Spain's capital. It feels at times like all trains travel through Atocha regardless of origin or destination. Good selection of shops and cafés including a pharmacy. The old brick part is lovely. Negative it is a bit of maze and Renfe staff can be rude at times. A red cap type service would be nice. Despite being listed as an available service and racks all over the station, trolleys for luggage are nowhere to be found.
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.
