    From Madrid to Alcala de Henares by train

    Getting ready to board the train to Alcala

    Traveling to Alcala de Henares from Madrid by train is a very quick and easy ride, which explains why so many people live in Alcala and work in Madrid. Trains depart from the Atocha station every 10 minutes, and it takes about 30 minutes to get to Alcala de Henares (trains run between 6:00 am and 11:30 pm every day). It then takes about 10 minutes (if you don't get lost) to walk over to the Plaza de Cervantes, in the historic area. Tickets for a roundway trip cost 4.90 Euros.

    The deserted train on our way from Madrid to Alcal

    While in Spain, the Cercanias train from Alcala to Madrid was victimized by a terrorist attack. Luckily, no one I knew was hurt from the attack. Nevertheless, we continued to take the train 2 to 3 times a week to Madrid for the remainder of our stay in Spain.

    A rare instance of Brianne riding the city bus.

    I walked everywhere in Alcala. Build those calf muscles. If you want to go to the Centro Comercial you'll have to take the bus.
