Trains in Spain are a convenient way to travel between cities, with a number of companies offering domestic and international train routes. Trains to Seville arrive at Santa Justa Station, which links Seville to other destinations in Spain. Santa Justa Station, located to the North-East of Seville on Avenida Kansas City, was built in the early 1990's for Expo 1992. High-speed Renfe AVE trains arrive in Seville from Cordoba, Malaga, Madrid, Valencia and Barcelona. Other long distance trains run to Cadiz, Jerez and Huelva. Local Cercanias bring commuters into the city from surrounding villages and towns, such as Dos Hermanos, Sierra Norte, Aljarafe and Utrera. The luxurious and historic al Andalus train, known as the Palace on Wheels, also operates out of Seville. Links between Santa Justa and Seville are by local urban and rural buses, or the modern tram line. Taxis and car rentals are available at the station. Santa Justa is not on Seville's Metro system. The nearest Metro station is Nervion, 1 km away.
The charming city of Seville is Andalucia's capital and sits on the wide River Guadalquivir. This was once navigable from the sea and helped create Seville's prominence and wealth as a port town. Visitors to Seville will find a contrast between ancient architecture sitting on narrow, cobbled streets, and modern buildings created for 20th century exhibitions. A good way to start a visit to Seville and get an overview of the city is by taking a boat trip. Visitor attractions include the Arabic Alcazar and Giralda Tower, as well as the later Seville Cathedral. Interesting museums include the Tobacco Factory and the Archaeological Museum, while across the river families with young children can enjoy the Isla Magica Theme Park. At the end of the day Seville comes alive with a night life of bars, tapas and flamenco music.
