The train from Algeciras to Granada via Ronda is well worth while. The stage to Ronda was built in the 1880s and links some 20 villages. It passes through lovely countryside as it climbs, taking about 1 hr 50 min to Ronda. The trains are new and comfortable - the seats are automatically allocated on buying the tickets and they...

Have used RENFE several times, and each time have been more impressed. Booked RENFE from Malaga to Madrid a few days before travelling online and it could not be more simple, purchased a Tarjeta Dorada card a few days earlier which is used for travelers over 60, which cost 6 Euro each, and reduced the fare from 60 Euro to...

I have just returned from a train trip around Spain. It would certainly not have been possible to have such an enjoyable trip were it not for the professionalism of Renfe - I would like to congratulate the company on its excellent service - professional staff, on-time trains, clean trains, food and beverage services available (buffet car, trolley or vending...

Poor signage for parking at the main station in malaga but eventually found the underground parking and once parked we were in the station in minutes. All luggage was put through X-ray but I do not think passengers were. What is the point. Anyway our reserved seats were waiting and it was a comfortable two hour ride to Seville in... More

We took the train to Ronda. Booked our tickets on-line from the UK but could have just as easily bought them at the station. We took the media distance train out and it was punctual, comfortable and with clear announcements. We caught the Altaria train back (a bit like an intercity) which again was punctual and comfy but with less... More

I purchased RENFE Spain Rail Passes for my wife, adult daughter and myself on line. I found the purchase to be relatively straight forward. Reserving seats was a little more difficult but I managed to get through it not too much effort. Be certain to reserve your seats in the order in which you will be traveling. Example, if you... More

We arrived in Algeciras by train from Cordoba. The last 90 minutes from Ronda to Algeciras takes you through some wonderfully scenic country. The train doesn't go very fast (averages about 40mph). Apparently RENFE want to close this line. The train was about 30% full.

The Algeciras to Ronda train journey is a trip through some of the most beautiful countryside in Andalucía. The little three-carriage train winds its way past some of the attractive 'white towns' of the region and through the spectacular scenery of the Los Alcornocales and Grazalema Natural Parks. British engineers built the line when Victoria was on the throne -... More
