travel from sevilla to malaga, from malaga to granada


I want to travel by train this summer from seville to malaga later on from malaga to granada and finally from granada to almeria.

I was searching for the train from seville santa justa to malaga (Maria Zambrano ) but can't find any trains on the 11th jyly.. Is it possible that it is to early to see the trains for july? This is the same when I try to find trains to travel from malaga to granada..

Is the train station Malaga Maria Zambrano for from the city center/ coast of malaga?

Can someone give me some advise,

Thanks in advance

Renfe tickets are normally available 62 days ahead, so times for July will be available in May.

Use the current timetable for your planning.

You won't find train from Malaga to Granada as the tracks and better connection have not yet been finished. People will take the bus from Malaga main bus station which is close to the Malaga Maria Zambrano rail station. Look at https://www.alsa.es/en for buses. There are regular buses. For July it is a little early to start to look at things. The Media Distancia train which runs from Santa Justa and San Bernardo stations to Malaga are good and cheaper than the AVANT ones which go via Cordoba. But look at times in next few days for an idea ? You can also take the train to Granada from Seville and then use bus to Malaga.

The Seville - Málaga train timetable doesn't change much (if at all) so as Cadiz Lover says, just look at trains running in the next few days (same day of the week as you wish to travel). There's no advantage in booking in advance, indeed there is a disadvantage as you then are tied to a particular train, so don't worry about that.

Maria Zambrano station for connections to trains on the local lines (to Funegirola along the coast or Álora up in the mountains).

The express bus service between Málaga and Granada is very good, again no need to book in advance.

For train travel:


To go to Granada, you have to take the bus. The bus station is at the back of the Maria Zambrano Station.

Read Buying Alhambra Tickets Online and BOOK EARLY.

The Maria Zambrano Station is located 1.4 km from Calle Larios, which is downtown. It takes about 20 minutes to walk the distance.

To go to Almeria from Granada, you can take Alsa Bus.
