Me gusta llegar a esta estación porque estás en el centro de la ciudad. Te bajas del tren y ya estás en medio de todo. I like coming in through this station because you're in the center of the city. You get off the train and you're right in the middle of the action.

Right out of a movie, a big airy platform with tracks numbered for destinations. Unfortunately not very many attendants speak anything but Spanish. so if you are not bi-lingual buy yourself a bi-lingual dictionary. The facade dates back to the pre war era. The station is only a few blocks from all of the shopping.

Influenced by Austrian Art Nouveau, style, the North station reflects the richness of the Valencian Huerta and the building is finely decorated with garlands of fruit,flowers & pastoral scenes in colourful ceramics of the period. A feat to the eyes for those who love that kind of architecture.

It's worth seeing, the outside is very beautiful and well maintained. Check the entrance hall and don't forget to have a look at the ceiling. It has been constructed and opened in 1917 and has been declared a God of Cultural Heritage in 1987. It is close to other main attractions of Valencia as the Plaza de Toros and the... More

This building has a beautiful interior with the traditional 'taquillas' the ticket booking windows and lovely mosaics and tiles on the walls and ceilings. It is spacy and easy to use as a railway station, the only advice I would give is that if you are travelling to other destinations, please check which station you will be leaving from as... More

The rest of the building is quite nice too. If you are close to the bullring be sure and check this station... More
