Valencia Nord is the station for trains to Barcelona. You will arrive at Barcelona Sants station.

You can buy tickets three months in advance and indeed should do so if your plans are fixed. That way it is very cheap. Spanish long distance trains have compulsory reservations and if you leave it too late you might find the train you want is full or at the least with all the cheap seats gone.

Look across to the right and read the item buying RENFE tickets on line. This has a lot of tips and tricks concerning their sometimes confusing system.

Thanks for that. Very helpful. Very difficult when you don't speak the language to understand RENFE website. We are going to be in Valencia for a few days so will go to station and book. Will try site again to see if I can get any joy.

There are now two stations in Valencia.

The old one, Valencia Nord, is served by the slower but still comfy Talgo trains to Barcelona, but the faster and more prestigious EuroMed trains now use a new section of special fast line and use a new station called Valencia Joaquin Sorolla a short distance away from Valencia Nord

If you select 'Valencia(*)' when booking at www.renfe.com it'll give both options, to/from either station.

Thanks you very much. Have been on the Renfe site but it keeps going into Spanish so I've given up. Will have another go!
