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.
