They had really cool metal detectors here and signs that said you couldn't take knives or guns on the train. I had purchased a sword but they said that was perfectly fine to take on board. No knives, but swords are OK. Too funny!

Arriving at the railway station is like arriving at a medieval and very well preserved building. The interior is stunning and the windows are beautiful. this 'old' and very beautiful building is actually a purpose built railway station. Worth a visit for photographs. It has the wow factor.

If you aren't expecting this, it's astonishing. Absolutely superb. Like a sort of fin-de-siecle mudejar cathedral. Let's hope they never start filling it with 'retail outlets'.

This was a very nicely designed train station. Beautiful tiles everywhere and nice architecture. Very clean and not too big. Clean bathrooms and one small cafeteria. Prices at the cafeteria where a bit high in my opinion. You can take a taxi to the city or you can walk if you don't mind the climb. The old city isn to... More

Awesome! Beautiful architecture that stands out from many other train stations in Spain. Trains in Spain are super reliable, efficient and safe. Loved coming to visit Toledo and arriving by rail. This station is safe, clean, visually beautiful, spacious for crowds and easily accessible. An enhanced experience while visiting Toledo.

Could not believe the architecture of this train station. Coming from Madrid, you are impressed by the façade and the interiors.

The Renfe train station has beautiful Mudejar architecture and this is probably the most beautiful train station in Spain. Mudejar architecture is timeless and never goes out of style. The Toledo Railway Station was designed by Narciso Claveria, who was an architect who tried to popularize Mudejar architecture during his life. There is plenty of ceramic tile, plaster, iron, stone... More

This is a splendid railway station dating from 1910 and reminiscent of the Belle Époque era. It makes a big impression when you arrive from Madrid and is worth a visit if you like Belle Époque architecture even if you are not travelling by train.

Arrive at Toledo on the high speed train from Madrid and your at this ornate period building. It's tiled walls, roof and exterior are worth spending a few minutes before you hit town. Small on site cafe. PS : if you are thinking of visiting from Madrid the renfe high speed train is a very cheap and easy way to... More
