Get on board!

Culture, customs, food – things that make Spain unique. However, we often forget one of the main factor why Spain differs to other European countries: geographically, Madrid is centrally located while most of the regional capitals such as Barcelona, Valencia, Sevilla and Bilbao are spread along the Mediterranean and Atlantic coasts. This unique shape would have made it rather easy for air traffic to replace rail traffic. However, planes have not achieved to do so, as train provider have not only managed to offer high speed trains that run up to 220 mph but also realized the idea of luxury trains designed to spend exciting holidays on board.
