HIGH-SPEED TRAINS AVE, ALVIA, EUROMED BY RENFE
The launch of the AVE high-speed service between Madrid and Seville in 1992 ushered in a new era for Spanish rail, which has re-emerged with force and with a focus on innovation. The Madrid-Barcelona, Madrid-Malaga, Madrid-Valladolid and Madrid-Valencia lines have enabled Renfe to continue introducing new AVE trains and expanding the scope of this service, which is linked to specific quality and comfort standards. Depending on how far you want to travel (medium-distance or long-distance), you’ll find a specific type of train.
