Estación de Atocha


Estación de Atocha review 1 Users say 3/5 Rate it

Madrid's classic wrought-iron and glass main rail station was built in 1888-92, to a design by Alberto del Palacio. It remained much the same, gathering a coating of soot, until the 1980s, when Rafael Moneo - he of the Museo Thyssen - gave it a complete renovation in preparation for Spain's golden year of 1992. Entirely new sections were added for the AVE high-speed train to Andalucia and the cercanías local rail network, and an indoor tropical garden was installed, in an imaginative blend of old and new.
