Does anyone know the exact location of the Camp de Tarragona train station where the AVE train to Madrid departs?
Hope this is of some help:
Camp de Tarragona is a railway station which opened on 19 December 2006, on the high-speed line between Madrid and Barcelona. Situated between the municipalities of La Secuita and Perafort, some 8 km north of Tarragona itself, the new station serves an area with an estimated population of over 400,000.
The station complex, covering 5.2 hectares, has eight standard-gauge tracks (four platform roads and four central through roads), two 400-metre-long island platforms, passenger handling facilities, a travel centre, shops, and parking for 648 vehicles.
Pending the planned completion in late 2007 of the next section of the Madrid – Barcelona high-speed line, between Camp de Tarragona and Barcelona Sants railway station, trains between Madrid and Barcelona change gauge at the Roda de Barà gauge-changing installation some 13 km east of Camp de Tarragona.
The final completion to the French frontier is planned for 2012.
to make it short: in the middle of nowhere!
This station is about 15 km from Tarragona, and only used by high speed trains. You can reach it by buses from Tarragona centre (bus station, plaça Imperial Tarraco)
Thanks for the information!!
