Seen from the outside, the building is beautiful. Inside you just have to stop and look around wondering if it is a museum or is it really beeing used? It is being used and you should take the time to wander around and look at all the details. Then you can go and buy your tickets - maybe for the... More

The North Station is the Renfe station in the city and it impresses one with its modernist architecture. There is stained glass, ceramics, and many other things that the visitor will notice. I always like to take photos when I go there.

One of the most beautiful railway stations I have ever seen. And the fun part is that is still being used. So order your ticket at one of the little wooden windows. And don't forget to look at the ceilings!

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.
