On the front façade you can see the most typical elements of Valencia culture: oranges, barracas (Valencia traditional house), La Albufera (the lake), women dressed with traditional Valencia dress. Inside, the decoration of the vestibule is beautiful, and then there is the iron nave over the railroads.

As well as its function, it is also a masterpiece especially its wall ornaments made with ceramics. But, ticket vending machines in it are well hidden from travellers.

We weren't talking a train anyway but it's well worth visiting for the murals. They're beautiful and very Spanish. And....it's free

This is such a beautiful structure. Spain has such incredibly beautiful train stations! If you are interested in really gorgeous buildings, this is for you.

Lovely old train station that is easy to include in a walking tour of Valencia. Ceramic tiles in vivid colours are partly also reliefs. Well preserved.

There are always 2 or 3 police officers patrolling around, which make the passengers feel very safe . I took several trains departing... More

Valencia's north station is beautifully ornate, with fabulous ceramic tiles. Not only that but the service is very efficient. We travelled to Gandia, which is about an hour away and the train was cheap and on time. I would recommend anyone to use this service. There is a very good left luggage office which we used before catching our flight... More

Us Brits tend to think we are the best at so many things and we are. However, when it come to public utility buildings we are often trumped by others. This station is huge it is clean and well organised. Outside there were 74 taxiis waiting to whisk you off to your destination. The major disappointment was the Tourist Information... More

A beautiful old building,outside it is decorated in an extremely ornate way you would not expect it to be a station.It is situated next to the bull ring on the edge of the old part of town.Even if you do not arrive in Valencia by train it is certainly worth a visit.
