Fodor's Expert Review Canfranc International Railway Station
In July and August a guided train tour departs from the Jaca RENFE station, heading to the valley and Canfranc's magnificent Belle Époque train station, abandoned since 1970 and slowly falling to pieces. The station has a bewitching history and was used as a location in the 1965 film Doctor Zhivago. At the time of writing, a high-end hotel slated to open in early 2023 was being constructed on-site by the Barceló hotel group; additionally, Spain was in serious talks with France about reopening the route to Pau. A nontourist train runs year-round between Jaca and Canfranc. Reservations are essential; call ahead or reserve your spot online.
