Estación de Atocha

Retiro Transportation Site (Airport, Bus, Ferry, Train)

Fodor’s Expert Review

A steel-and-glass hangar, Madrid's main train station was built in the late 19th century by Alberto Palacio Elissague, who became famous for his work with Ricardo Velázquez in the creation of the Palacio de Cristal (Crystal Palace) in Madrid's Parque del Buen Retiro. Today, following renovations by architect Rafael Moneo, the station's main hall resembles a greenhouse; it's filled with tropical trees and contains a busy little turtle pool, a magnet for kids.
