Trains to Malaga

Málaga, founded in approximately 770 BC, is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in Europe. Located in Andalusia, Spain along the blue waters of the Costa del Sol, this port city is home to both ancient citadels and modern high-rises overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Málaga has one centralized train station, the Málaga-Maria Zambrano Station, which provides daily service throughout Spain.

Which is the main train station in Malaga?

Málaga-Maria Zambrano Station reopened after renovation in 2007 in the southwestern section of downtown Málaga. The station is quaint, housing only 11 tracks, five of which are reserved for AVE services, the high-speed railway company in Spain. A few tracks provide service for the port and the remaining tracks are for local service. Though small, the station is conveniently located just over one mile from the port and five and a half miles from the airport. The airport is connected to Málaga-Maria Zambrano Station through the local train services called Cercanias.

The local train company, Cercanias, provides underground service to the city center and surrounding area. AVE provides service to Madrid, Seville, Cordoba, Valencia, and Barcelona. Trains to Madrid leave approximately every 60-90 minutes and trains to Barcelona leave twice daily. There is one scheduled train to Valencia on both Fridays and Saturdays. Service to Seville departs six times each day. All trains make a few local stops prior to their final destination.

Before you travel to Malaga by train - good to know!

Málaga is the birthplace of Pablo Picasso. It's also home to two Moorish citadels dating back nearly 2,000 years, the famed Alcazaba and the ruins of Gibralfaro. There is also a Renaissance cathedral that has been dubbed La Manquita (“one-armed lady”) because one of its two towers was mysteriously left unfinished. With nearly 100 miles of coastline, travelers looking for a more restful experience will have no trouble finding a suitable beach.
