Madrid's main Railway Stations:
Glorieta del Emperador Carlos V (at the end of Paseo del Prado)
Metro: Atocha Renfe
the largest and most used train station. It is close to the city center.
The photo shows the front of the old
Atocha station now renovated by architect Rafael Moneo and converted
into a sort-of botanical garden for
high humidity plants. Long distance trains
arrive into a modern station inside the old one, which is called 'Puerta de Atocha'. Note that the metro station named Atocha IS NOT directly connected with the train station, the one which does connect is ATOCHA RENFE.
Atocha is the main station for trains to the South, East and West of Spain.
