    Good gardens inside the building

    Trains in Spain arrive and leave on scheduled time. Departure trains close the access 2 min before scheduled time. Don't be a lazy ass like me and arrive at least 30 minutes early, no refunds if late.

    Station among others for the fast train: Renfe Ave (arrival is brilliantly located separately from the departure). With good sign it's easy to navigate.

    a great looking place. lots of turtles in the pond, and lots of weird esoteric stalls in the jungle.

    Botanical garden with water turtles inside a train station, woahh!

    Too crazy for my taste. Two different floors, poor food offer (6.5€ for a Spanish omelette sandwich) and a bunch of people swarming around all lost. But the turtles are very cute.

    Very big and nice station. If you want to go to Barcelona or Sevilla just take the AVE and in 2-3h you are at your village/ city/ town.

    A bit confusing how to get to the right railway section and the roof in the main area is leaking so watch out that it doesn't drip on your head!

    Get the city map, metro map from the information center. Taxis are plenty but be careful. The taxi driver I got was not honest. Short changed me and when asked for the difference, just drove off.

    Nice architecture. But the reservation process was sooo slow. We waited about an hour and half to get our ticket to Barcelona.

    Automated luggage storage located behind Aviary. After inserting your bags, you pay for the first day and get a coded ticket. There is a security guard with a security scanner for added protection.

    Curiously, the original train shed has been turned into a gorgeous indoor park-like space. Worth giving yourself ten minutes to appreciate if pushing through.

    The ticket machines do not seem to accept US credit cards. Prepare to wait on line an hour to buy same-day tickets. Get a number for advance ticket sales: the wait for those is even longer.

    Alwais big lines for tickets, just use machines, they are multilinguistic. Although sometimes certain trains are not available through the machines.
