Train to Segovia

by cybertraveler14

Hello.

We are going to take a day trip from Madrid to Segovia. We're looking at taking the AVANT train at 8:30. I was wondering if there would be any problems buying train tickets just before departure, or if we needed to purchase them ahead of time. Tickets are € 9,45 correct?

Also, we will be coming on metro line 1 from the Sierra de Guadalupe stop to the Chamartin stop for the AVANT train, does anyone have an estimate how much time that will take (so we budget enough time)?

Thanks so much!

Hola,

We got the bus instead which was cheaper and quicker and was very enjoyable.The La Sepulvedana Bus company runs frequent busses to Segovia. Estación de la Sepulvedona (Bus Station). For Segovia and Avila: Paseo de la Florida, 11. Information: (91) 430 48 00. We got the bus from Estacion Principe Pio, the journey took 1 hour 15 mins.

There are frequent trains from Atocha and Chamartin in Madrid at a cost of 4.90 Euros for a second class, one way ticket [ schedule ]. Trip takes about two hours.

I would either buy tickets for the train in advance or take the bus. Enjoy your trip, we had a brilliant day and don't miss the roast suckling pig for lunch.

Best wishes

Thanks to both of you for your replies. We were looking at taking one of the "new" high speed trains since they only take about 30 minutes and we don't have a lot of time in Spain.

Do the high speed (AVANT) trains leave from Nuevos Ministerios? I thought they only left from Chamartin?

Thanks again

Travel Tips for Madrid

OMELETTE de POTATO

by Danalia

Ingredients

Ingredients for 4 people
4 medium potatoes
4 or 5 eggs
1 medium onion
¼ l of olive oil Salt

Preparation

Peel, wash and dry the potatoes.Cut in thin slices and place in a deep pan with olive oil at medium heat so that they cook slowly. Add the finely chopped onion. Fry slowly with the potatoes until they are soft and beginning to brown. It is best to stir using a skimming spoon to cut up the vegetables. After 10 minutes strain off the oil. Beat the eggs with a pinch of salt in an earthenware bowl. Add the potato and onion mix. Put the pan back on the heat with a little of the oil and add the egg and potato mix. Cover the pan and leave to cook on a low flame for 5 to 10 minutes until the bottom begins to brown. Turn the omelette upside down using a lid and then put it back in the pan on the other side so that it slowly sets. It should brown on both sides. Presentation

Serve on a round plate or serving dish, hot or cold. If you want to use it for a picnic or cut it up you should use more potatoes so that it is thicker and easier to carry and cut. In this case, eat cold.

Tabernas

by ger4444

The ultimate Madrelian thing is the taberna: the typical pub/bar dating already from the medeaval area. Since the 14 th century the taberna is a phenonemon that is typically connected to the city of Madrid. These old bars are charestically decorated by decorative tiles on the wall depicting different cheesey images, the wooden counter from behind which food and drinks are being served, the grand clock above the bar, and the tables of the places are mostly made out of marble. Madrid has some 100 old tabarnas amongst which the following ones are the best known and the most striking. 1. Viva Madrid (in the near of Plza santa anna, its very popular amongst youth and students) 2. Casa Carmencita (originally a pub for artists, politici and itellectuals, it has a pleasant interior dominated by wooden decorations, tiles and gaslight) 3. La Bola (a red couloured pub, wich is about 200 years old and serves the best cocido in Madrid)

Plazza Salvador Dali and Ave Felipe 11

by suvanki

After finding the Palacio Deportes, I wandered a bit further, and came across this Square, with its interesting artwork. I'm not sure if these had a connection with Dali.
It was Sunday morning, and there was a lot going on in this Plazza, and the adjoining Ave Felipe 11.

There was a basketball match, played by teams in wheelchairs, a group of children were doing paintings etc, some were playing on the slides etc, while another group were doing something with a piece of brightly coloured material.

To be continued....

concerts and musicals

by mindcrime about TEATRO ALBENIZ

It was nice surprise to see a top greek singer live in Madrid. The theatre was full of locals which was another surprise for me. Later I learned that Haris Alexiou(video) is popular in Spain the last years. The sound in the theatre was great the perfomance good so we had a nice gig for 25euro.

The Albeniz theatre was built in 1945 and it is one of the biggest in Spain with 1040 people capacity. You can see here large scale theatre, dance and musical performances and also the annual Caja Madrid’s Flamenco Festival.

We bought our tickets online two days before. The theatre is located near Sol square so you can pass by and check who’s playing.
