Salmanca to Seville: Which option?

by FreeCloud

We (2 adults) have 2 options:
A1: Train from Salamanca to Madrid - Chamarti station;
A2: Transfer to AVE train from Madrid - Puerta de Atocha station to Seville.
How far between the two stations? What is the best way to go from Chamarti to Puerta de Atocha station? Metro? Bus? Taxi? How much time will it take?

B1: Bus from Salamanca to Madrid
B2: Transfer to AVE train from Madrid - Puerta de Atocha station to Seville.
How far between the bus terminal and the train station? What is the best way to go from Chamarti to Puerta de Atocha station? Metro? Bus? Taxi? How much time will it take?

Which option will be the most convenient, it would be a long day, we would like to make as smooth as possible.

Thanks for any advice!

In my opinion, the smoother solution is the option A. Train from Salamanca to Madrid Chamartin, then take in the same Madrid Chamartin station the train to Puerta de Atocha station (you have about ten trains every hour from 6,00 am until 12,00 pm). The transfer is about 13 minutes (not included the transfer of plataform + waiting time). You can expect to spend in total about 30 minutes. In this option, forget the metro, bus or taxi.

One more advice, please note that the train from Salamanca to Madrid is a "regional diesel train" (TRD), which is like a "second" class train and these trains usualy have some delays. Be conservative and take, at least, a couple of hours (two should be OK) between your arrival to Chamartin and your departure from Atocha.

Maybe faster could be the bus express from Salamanca to Madrid, option B, but then you must take a taxi when your arrival to Madrid. You have the option of metro and buses, but not with direct connections with Atocha and the transfer is not easy.

Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me again.

Best regards

Yea, if you take the AVE in Madrid to Sevilla the trip will go much faster. but its more expensive.
Just to clarify, the train that goes from Chamartin station to Atocha Station is the Cercania train (commuter train) and is on the other end of the tracks from where you will arrive on. So once inside the station go down to tracks 1-5 and you will see a ticket booth for the Cercania trains (look for the red backwards C) It costs about 1 euro or so. As mentioned before they run quite frequently to atocha. Once in Atocha you will need to walk to the other part of the station to the AVE, its easy, just follow the signs or ask.
have a great trip!

Travel Tips for Salamanca

Universidad de Salamanca - the royals

by Mikebond

What I most liked in the façade of the Universidad de Salamanca was the tondo portraying King Ferdinando and Queen Elisabetha (their names are written under their bodies). Moreover, I was glad to read an inscription in Greek that says The royals to education and this one to the royals.
Anyway, even if you cannot read Greek, you can enjoy the beauty of the two sculptures and of the decorations.

Washing the roads

by fairy_dust

Late night and early morning, soon before the sun comes up, some roads are washed. Some workers drive huge machines that kinda look like zambonis, and they literally wash the roads with water and soap. They do this in the Plaza Mayor, and other places in the downtown area. So these places are always squeaky clean in the morning! It also explains why some roads are wet in the morning even though there was no rain.

I cant remember them all :/...

I cant remember them all :/ but I do recall imbibing a Cuba Libre or 4 at the following bars (whether they're still there or not, I dont know...)


Potemkin
Camelot - free Cava on entry :)
Morgana
O'Neills (come on, I had to check out the Irish bar!)
Berlin
La Iguana Student town so expect rich kids to scruffmuffins.

El Puente Romano - Roman Bridge

by wanderlust23

Moving down the street toward the river on Avenida Reyes de Espana, we come to a wonderful view of the ancient Roman Bridge (el Puente Romano) spanned across the Tormes River. The fifteen arches of the bridge closest to the city, constructed during the time of Trajan (A.D. 98-117), are original. The remainder of the bridge was swept away during a flood in 1626. Regardless, the bridge is an amazing site from the Puente de Enrique Esteban.

Crossing the bridge, which only allows foot traffic now, gives you a commanding view of the Catedral Vieja and Catedral Nueva.

Cathedrals

by andal13

Salamanca has a peculiar condition: it has two Cathedrals. The Old one, a charming Romanesque building (12th and 13th centuries) has a magnificent retable; the New one (16th century) has Gothic, Renaissence and Baroque elements, and its façades are masterpieces.
To visit the Old Cathedral, you must come into the New one.

Salamanca tiene una condición particular: tiene dos Catedrales. La Vieja, un encantador edificio románico (siglos XII y XIII) tiene un magnífico retablo; la Nueva, (siglo XVI), reúne elementos góticos, renacentistas y barrocos, y sus fachadas son obras maestras.
Para visitar la Catedral Vieja, deben atravesar la Nueva.
