Every turn, every bridge and tunnel you go through becomes an exciting adventure. At each stop, the train station tells its story. Stories of the city, its people, its history and much more. The Railway Station of Toledo, Spain, is undoubtedly one of those magical stops that we enjoy very much when visiting this great city.
The Toledo Train Station was recently recognized as the most beautiful station in Spain according to the website “Cultura Inquieta”, article published on 10/15/2019. In our opinion, it is among the most beautiful in Europe.
The station honors Toledo’s nickname, “City of the three cultures”, as it masterfully combines the most recognized ancient styles. Mainly in the “neo-Mudejar” style, the structure also has a very strong Arab influence. The station was inaugurated in 1919 replacing an earlier 1800 station and is located west of the Tagus River.
The Toledo Station is composed of a main hall with five doors or gates, two platforms to service three Trains and a Clock Tower. The Toledo train station is the exquisite aperitif of what lies ahead, upon reaching the old city.
