train travel

by holly57

Hi!

I am very glad I have found this site! My friend and I are going to the boom festival in portugal(3-9th august). The flights to lisbon and porto in portugal are too expensive- we dont have the money for them, and we would still have to pay 55 euros each for the bus to the festival. There are affordable flights to valladolid but I have no idea how feasible it is to travel to the festival in portugal by train and cant find much info on train travel from spain to portugal. So basically I want to know if it is possible to take the train from valladolid to Idanha-a-Nova in portugal?

I appreciate any help you can give!

You don't say what time (or day!) your flight would arrive at Valladolid but you would have to go from there to Madrid then it takes 11 hours to Castelo Branco via Entroncamento, a major Portuguese railway junction on the Madrid-Lisbon line, and from Castelo Branco you would have to get a bus to Idanha-a-Nova, see http://www.boomfestival.org/archiv/boom02/content/pics/04/travel_info.htm. You will see from that that there are also special buses e.g. from all major cities in France, although unfortunately link doesn't work! Ryanair flies to Beauvais, N. of Paris, and Carcassonne - but then they used to fly to Porto and Faro from Stansted, don't they still? Also I thought Portugalia flew from Birmingham to Lisbon, but when I looked for cheap flights from B'ham on 2 August and return on 10 August I got KLM via Amsterdam and Lufthansa via Frankfurt, both about 178 GBP: http://www.justtheflight.co.uk/cheap-flights-from-BHX/LIS-lisbon.html. You should also look into flight-only deals with UK package tour companies to Lisbon, Porto or Faro, some of which may even leave from Bristol.
For train timetables, this covers the whole of Europe and you may find it easier than www.renfe.es: http://plannerint.b-rail.be/bin/query.exe/en?L=b-rail&
But it won't give you prices for trains outside Belgium, for that you will have to check with RENFE. You may well find it a false economy to take a "cheap" flight to Valladolid rather than a more expensive one to Portugal.

Hi,
I don´t know if Valladolid is the best option. From Valladolid Airpot to Lisboa (Santa Apolonia Station) you have to make the following way:
- Take a bus from Valladolid Airport to Valladolid Bus Station. you will find prices ant timetables in www.aena.es
- From Valladolid Bus Station to Valladolid Railway Station (Campo Grande) 5 minutes walking
- From Valladolid (campo Grande) to Lisboa (Santa Apolonia Station) take a train. For timetables search in www.renfe.es The prices are in document http://www.renfe.es/productos/pdf/surex_151205_adultos.pdf

sorry I havnt got back on here to say thanks sooner, but I have had very important exams, and.. it took us ages to sort out what we were doing. Took your advice about it being easier to travel in oporto or lisbon, so we have flights to oporto.

You must remember though, although england is blessed(?) with low cost airlines, they are not always low cost an it is very destination specific. When i was referrirng to expensive flights, they were 200 pounds at the time, which is a lot. Luckily they went back down again to about 125 pounds. It is luck as to whether a flight is cheap or not!

Many thanks for your help and advice!

Custom Birds...

by zindara

They are birds that strictly follow their customs... They come back every year around "San Blas" day (3 February).
You can see them in many church towers. This nest is on one of the cathedral's walls.

Museum of Valladolid

by lbhspatriot

This museum contains works of art and archaeology and was created in 1879, the visit is interesting enough as it is located in the 15th century Fabio Nelli Palace.
The exhibition is divided into two sections: Archaeology and Fine Arts. T
he Archaeology section starts at the Palaeolithic age and ends at the Middle Ages. Then Fine Arts cover the 15th and 16th-century paintings and 17th-century furniture, tapestries, metalwork, even some traditional Spanish ceramics. This is a great place to learn about the city's history.

The admission is fairly cheap as it is only €1.20, with free entrance for seniors and children.

The University

by -deja.Ismael

The University of Valladolid disputes with the neighboring of Salamanca the title of the most ancient of Spain (and of Europe). A recent ranking of Spanish Universities clasified it among the top 5 in matters like History, Physics, Mathematics ...

Its rectorate (photograph) is placed on a palace from XIV century, thugh the most emblematic building is the Faculty of Law, from XVIII century (the legend says that you cannot count the number of lions of its façade, if you want to end your studies). Other historical buildings are the "Casa del estudiante" (Student House, from XV century), "Colegio de los Ingleses" (English College, from XVII century) ....
