Question about travel from Tarifa to Sevilla

by KathyOlson

I am traveling with my husband and son from Tarifa to Sevilla on March 22, 2008. Is there a local train or bus we can take? Also, since this is pre-Easter can/should we get tickets ahead of time? I could not find a Renfe train line to Tarifa. We are currently living in Barcelona - where would we go to get advance tickets? Thanks for any help you may be able to give us!

There doesn't seem to be much of a train service between the 2 and even buses you need to change in Cadiz. Buses start around 7.00 in the morning to Cadiz and every hour. From Tarifa to Sevilla from 7.00 every 2 hours on the hour with an extra one at 13.30. Probably Linesure from Cadiz to Tarifa and TG Comes to Sevilla. Timetables are given to operate everyday.

OOPs typo, that Tarifa to Sevilla on the 3rd line should, of course read ,Cadiz to Sevilla. Sorry

There is no train service. Take TG comes buses changing at cadiz. You can buy tickets on their website http://www.tgcomes.es/ though you shouldn't need to worry about booking ahead unless you travel during Semana Santa.

You can check the timetables on the website too.

Well looking at the site it seems you don't have to change buses, though I'm sure it goes via Cadiz.

It costs 16 euros and there are about 4 buses a day.

Things aren't well linked down here.

COMES is having problems with staff over working conditions. they do advertise strikes during Semana Santa. On the web site they say 19th, 21st and 23rd will be strike days (all day) HUELGA !!
So don't know what may happen on the 22nd. Maybe it will be ok.

An alternative route from Tarifa to Seville is to use LINESUR bus operator. They run services via Jerez using the A381 smooth dual carriageway road from near San Roque to Jerez then onto the main motorway from Jerez to Seville. The times are on www.linesur.com

Only thing is that you need to get from Tarifa to Algeciras (San Bernardo bus station) and the local bus service is - yes - TG COMES ! The distance between Tarifa and Algeciras is not that great - about 30 minutes by taxi. Perhaps a taxi fare may not be too much if all else fails.

Travel Tips for Tarifa (Cadiz)

Culture

by venteeocho

Tarifa has always been wrapped around in an aura of mystery. Ever since ancient mythology told stories of the Pillars of Hercules, of which Gibraltar is one , being where the world ended, travellers have always been weary and intrigued by this place. Sailors will still narrate how sailing past Tarifa’s coast evokes the similar fascination.

This very same atmosphere attracts all kinds of visitors, be it for windsurfing or just for laying out on the beach, or for more profound reasons: It's history can still be discovered and still generates emotions that are hard to define in words, as many historians poets, writers and artists in general, who live or simply pass, by will tell you.

Travel back in time following the various stages of Tarifa’s history using the links on the left. Be culturally prepared for this mystical immersion you will experience when coming to Tarifa. You may find that it is so interesting that you may reconsider spending most of your time on the beaches, and not let culture pass by again.

Christmas decorations

by Bwana_Brown

This was the first time that we experienced Christmas/New Year in a Spanish-speaking country and we noticed that the level of festivities seemed to be prolonged much further than the December 25th Christmas Day customs in english-speaking countries (Canada, England, Zambia and Papua New Guinea in our case). At several different locations in Spain, we noticed decorations such this one across the street from our Hostal Alborada in Tarifa, showing both Santa Claus and the Three Wise Men gaining access to someone's house (apparently one does not 'come down the chimney' there!).

It turns out that the end of Christmas in Spain is not celebrated until January 5, when a party is held and everyone exchanges gifts. This is tied in with the arrival of the Three Wise Men in the city where Jesus was born and then presenting the baby with gifts. In Spain, Santa takes second place to them in popularity. I was wondering why the festivities were still continuing while we were in Madrid almost a week later!

Wind Farms

by keeweechic

Dotting the hillsides behind Tarifa are huge wind farms. In fact these farms are one of the largest in Europe with hundreds of wind turbines making the most of this windy region to create electricity.

These huge modern windmills stand some 67 metres high and create enough electricity to service Tarifa town and more.

Vejer de la Frontera

by Carmela71

love to stop at VEJER DE LA FRONTERA, where i have enjoyed good days years ago. It is sited on the top of a mountain, and apart of an old castle and incredible views it has the spirit of a white village.

High Price To Pay

by keeweechic

The Guman's castle came under threat by the Moors who demanded that Guzman surrender the castle for the release of his infant son who they had captured. Guzman refused and his son as killed. The castle was to go through many sieges, the last of which was an unsuccessful attempt by Napoleon’s troops in 1812. The castle is open to the public for a small fee.
