Only a relatively short walk from the centre of the City the Railway Museum, located in the former Delicias Station and, apparently, one of the largest railroad collections in Europe, has a wide range of both steam and diesel locomotives, carriages and railcars. Together with...More

It is a very cool museum with historical trains and the opportunity to get on some of them. They have a restaurant/bar inside a train car that takes you back in time. The visit is mandatory!

I was in the middle of December, a truly wonderful building, a rich collection of locomotives and wagons, Spain has truly unusual locomotives, which makes them even more interesting, at least for me. I am more prominent about German locomotives and central Europe. Entry fee...More
