More about the AVE Málaga Córdoba
The journey time to travel the 134 km that separate these two characteristic Andalusian cities is, on average, 56 minutes. You have many different departures at your disposal, from 6:20 in the morning until 21:20 at night. The departure will be comfortably done from the station of Málaga María Zambrano and the arrival will be at the station of Córdoba in the Glorieta de las Tres Culturas, S / N.
Córdoba station was inaugurated in 1994 and replaced the Central Córdoba station that offered rail services since 1859. However, the building was not destroyed but its functionality was changed. Currently, it is the local headquarters of the RTVA, the Radio and Autonomic Television Chanel in Andalusia.
The station in Córdoba is open daily from 06:00 to 24:00. This facility has Dialoga service, a service for the deaf and hearing impaired, to facilitate the use of the services in the stations and it is also adapted for people with reduced mobility. Furthermore, the station is very well connected with the rest of the city and with nearby interurban towns. There is a taxi rank, city buses and an intercity bus station near the railway station that will facilitate the mobility of the passenger.
The new station buried the tracks. This saved marginal neighbourhoods that were previously separated by the tracks. In addition, they gained a lot of space and besides integrating two slums, they had space to build homes, offices and leisure facilities.
The station is of rectangular plant and from the outside we can appreciate a metallic structure with crystals. In addition, in the outside there have been installed very modern decorative fountains. During its construction, archaeological remains were found. Unfortunately, they were partially destroyed.
The station has eight tracks in total, four with international width for high speed trains and four tracks in Iberian gauge for Media and Larga Distancia trains. The most used Long Distance services are the connections between Madrid and Barcelona with Andalusia, especially with Sevilla and Malaga. For Media Distance, Renfe uses MD and Avant to go mainly to Cádiz, Jaén, Málaga and Sevilla.
