Train from Granada to Madrid

I will be taking a train from Granada to Madrid in July. I've searched the Renfe website so trains on the day I'm planning to travel and nothing show up. I've seen other people post that their is indeed a train from Granada to Madrid. Is there a reason it is not showing up? Does it not run everyday or does Renfe only allow you to purchase a certain amount of days in advance? Thanks!

you will need to travel to Seville and change there for a train to Madrid.

Sorry but the previous poster is incorrect. There is absolutely no need to go via Sevilla to travel from Granada to Madrid by train. The summer timetables have likely not been posted which is why they are not showing up.

There are normally two trains per day from Granada to Madrid leaving at 09.10 and 18.05 taking around 4 1/2 hours. The schedule will be published soon I am sure so look again later.

Many travellers between these cities like the bus route and you have all the times on :


The cheapest bus stops at a place called ALMURADIEL for a rest stop about half way through the journey. The more expensive ones are non stop with on board facilities (and leather seats).

Thanks all! I'm actually thinking about taking the bus now since it seems like the better choice.

I'm taking the 9:10 train tomorrow I can let you know how it is but I have been very impressed by the trains in Spain thus far. If you get a promo fare (like I did, 20 euros and change), the train seemed like the better option for me when I was planning
