Operating most of railways in Spain, Red Nacional de Ferrocarriles Españoles, or RENFE is Spain's railway system. Madrid Atocha is Madrid’s largest railway station and main station to serve commuter trains (Cercanís), regional trains from the south, intercity, plus the AVE high speed trains from Seville and Barcelona. RENFE makes sure to run all of these train services.
Reserve your Madrid car hire and have it meet you when you arrive to Atocha, or opt to have it there at any other city you may have connection with along the RENFE line.
This station sits at the convergence of several main streets where we can name Paseo de la Infanta Isabel, Calle de Atocha, Avenida de la Ciudad de Barcelona, Calle de Néndez Álvaro, Paseo del Prado, Paseo de Santa María de la Cabeza, Ronda de Atocha, and Paseo de las Delicias. Its convenient location in the Atocha neighborhood of the Arganzuela district makes it ideal to begin your trip, and it’s always easier when you have your Madrid car hire.
A real railway complex, the Atocha station faces the Plaza del Emperador Carlos V, which is formed by the Madrid Puerta de Atocha stations and the Madrid Atocha Cercanías of RENFE plus the Madrid underground. Some have compared the station’s interior plaza with a huge greenhouse. One of its most appealing characteristics is its enormous island of greenery and tropical-looking plants right in the center, along with the open, airy and full of light feel you get while waiting your ride. Travelers enjoy this as opposed to the industrial feel most train stations usually have; this one makes for a unique and welcoming traveling stop.
