My friend Graham Hunt posted this photo of the Estación del Norte in Valencia and I thought it was worth commenting on. I have to say that many of Spain’s main railway stations are quite beautiful in a way I find it difficult to explain. Is it the romance of travel, the unnecessarily ostentatious architecture or the sheer contempt for functionality? I don’t know! I do know however that I am impressed with the Estación del Norte as well as Madrid’s Atocha and Barcelona’s Estación de Francia.
