Estacion Atocha

The Atocha train station opened in 1851 and was the first train station in Madrid. After being destroyed by fire, it was rebuild in 1892. In 1992 a new station was built directly behind the old station to serve the new high speed AVE trains. The old building was converted into a complex with a night club, shops and a 4000 square meter tropical garden.


When inside, you constantly hear the hiss of the steam pipes. The atmosphere is very humid and warm. In front of the garden is a pond with turtles.

On March 11th 2004 two bombs went off in train stations underground. Terrorists, probably linked to el Qaeda, killed 192 people.
