Atocha Station, Madrit, Spain

March 31st, 2007 / / Links: Google Earth, Google Maps, Yahoo! Maps, Virtual Earth / Nearest places
 

Atocha Station (Estación de Atocha) is the largest railway station in Madrid. It is the primary station serving commuter trains (Cercanías), intercity and regional trains from the south, and the AVE high speed trains from Seville (Andalusia) and Lérida (Catalonia). These train services are run by the Spanish national rail company, Renfe.

The station was Madrid's first railway station. It was inaugurated on 9 February 1851 under the name Estación de Mediodía (Noon [i.e. South] Station).

After the building was largely destroyed by fire, it was rebuilt and reopened in 1892. The architect for the replacement, in a wrought iron renewal style was Alberto de Palacio Elissagne, who collaborated with Gustave Eiffel, engineer of the Eiffel Tower and the Statue of Liberty's armature.

This old building was taken out of service in 1992 and converted into a concourse with shops, cafés, a nightclub, and a 4,000 m² covered tropical garden. A modern terminal by Rafael Moneo, designed to serve the new AVE trains to Seville, was added to the complex.
