There are a number of long-distance trains from Madrid Atocha. They connect the capital to the rest of Spain and even to bordering countries such as France and Portugal.

Types of trains

Routes are covered by a range of trains. They include the premium high-speed AVE trains that can reach up to a super fast 310kms/hour! Alvia trains can also reach fairly high speeds of up up to 250kms/hour. There are other long-distance trains. Altaria trains go up to 200kms/hour. And when booking, you might see trains refereed to as LD or Trenhotel. LD stands for Larga Distancia and the Trenhotels are overnight sleeper trains. However, the Trenhotel services go from Madrid Chamartin rather than Atocha.
