Read top questions but still confused?? Madrid to Segovia

Hi all,

Maybe it's my jet lag or the body shock at the hours they keep here in Spain but I am stuck. I want to get from central Madrid(Sol) to Segovia today. It is currently 3.45am. I think around 12.00 pm would suit.

All info says that I need to leave from a station 4 klms away but how do I get to that station. I have familiarised myself with Atocha and I can walk there but my Spanish is very limited.

Could someone please help as Renfe site says (I think) that its not possible today.

Cheers

Take a 'Cercanías' train from Sol to Chamartin station. This ride lasts 10 minutes. Schedules:

A taxi is your best and only option, as you are running out of time.

The cercanias train leaves from Sol?, I thought it left from Atocha. Sol only has the Metro.

I'm not from there so you may be correct. I don't recall a train station in Sol.

Cercanias to Chamartin is one short flight of stairs below the street level at the eastern most entrance to the Sol Metro stop.

Sol has Cercanías since 2008. Maybe you were here before that.

Many thanks MACPollo , we where there in 2011 , and 2012. We stayed in Opera and we would walk to Atocha regularly to catch the train . We thought the glass dome in the centre of Sol was a Metro station. Oh well , the exercise was good and thanks to you we will use the Sol train when we visit next year. Muchas gracias.

Sol is both a metro station and a Cercanias station. Many transfers for the Metro are there. It's the center of Madrid as well as the theoretical center of Spain. Have you seen the brass plaque imbedded in the sidewalk to the south of the "glorieta'?
