Satriani Live in Castellón de la Plana, Spain

Hello,

I'm planning with my friends to go in May next year to a Satriani concert in Castellon.
I don't know yet anything about this city.
I need some guidelines about a camping, low trains to Madrid/Barcelona/Valencia, weather in the spring and some turistic attractions.

Thank you in advance,
Iuli

I live in Castellon ! Satriani plays here ?? I just didn't know !!

Well, first of all...there's no camping in the city LOL There are, of course, in coastal villages nearby, but public transport doesn't run in the night.
I don't know what you mean with "low trains". We have a commuters train each half an hour to Valencia (each hour in the weekends), trains every two hours to Barcelona (some are slightly cheaper than others) and two trains a day to Madrid (both the same kind of train, Alaris , a good one).

Weather in the spring should be nice, even with hot days...and also some not so hot or rainy.

Take a look at this website, click on the UK flag for the english version

Thanks a lot for really useful informations.

Wow, I see I hope you have luck with the tickets, Castellon Auditorium is small for that kind of event, about 1500 people, all of them sitting.

The other venues where he perfoms in Spain are not big either, but bigger than Castellon one, specially in Madrid where there are no seats, is all standing. Palau de la Musica in Barcelona is an outstanding venue, just beautiful.

I forgot to say..if you want to travel cheap..think about coach. It's slower and not as comfortable, but it's not bad and is cheaper than the train.

The cheapest trains..amount 5 euros less than Euromed in Tourist class, I think it's not worth. And buses..it depends, from Castellón there are only two "express" buses to Barcelona during the day, so if you are not able to catch one..the trip is 4 and a half hours in a normal one, it stops almost everywhere (I had the experience, never again !)
