The ceramics are fantastic: ceilings, details, embellishments. Walk through and take the time to admire the craftsmanship. Rail stations are nostalgic and the architectural features are a throwback in time!

Worth seeing for it's art nouveau decor and ceramic tiles inside and out but that is it as there is not much more to see, it's a half hour 'thing' and a coffee after. It stands right nextdoor to the Bull Ring which was closed for a concert when we arrived.

Well kept in colors and materials. Tiles en wooden walls. A style of Jugendstil and prosperity. Nothing to dislike.

Fantastic building, helpful staff, train boards in Spanish and English. Local bars in station cheap and efficient, excellent wine at 2 Euros a large glass. Nice place to sit or shop whilst awaiting your train.

Estacion del Norte, moderniste, beautiful and highly functional. What a pleasure to use a facility that's is so clean and well laid out. In the very heart of the city and next to the great bullring and opposite the grand town hall. Built over a hundred years ago in the moderniste style to reflect the revolutionary ideas of the Catalan... More

Wide open spaces under a beautiful ceiling. Connect rail and metro (the direct line to the airport calls here) and their is a very good left luggage location for those of you with later flights.

Go from here to all points by train. The fast train station is a little below but there is a free shuttle.

This is a historic railway station that has kept its original features and it is beautiful. Check out the ceramic tiles with oranges everywhere.

Being in Valencia, you should visit its train station: a monument of ART NOUVEAU. Your mouth really falls open and you start thinking you are in an open monument!

Great architecture! You do not need to be a train buff to enjoy this stop. Don't pass up a chance to view and explore this beautiful building.
