The North Station
The North Station is a century-old building in Valencia, designed by the architect Demetrio Ribes, through which passenger trains run. It is the most important station in the city and connects the towns in the north of the province with those in the south. It is located in the heart of the city centre, right next to the Plaza de Toros, and was inaugurated on 8 August 1917.
This busy station is characterised by a modernist architectural style in which you can see on the exterior façade mosaics of women in the typical clothing of the time, garlands of oranges and other agricultural products. Undoubtedly a detailed representation of Valencian culture. On the other hand, the interior of the station has a more elegant touch thanks to the ceramic mosaics.
The North Station, due to its geographical layout and architectural quality, was classified as a Historic Artistic Monument in 1961 and in 1983 as an Asset of Cultural Interest. To visit this place and take a train to visit the towns around Valencia, you have to get on the bus line 92, at the Illes Canàries stop, and get off at the seventh stop, called Germanies, and then walk for 4 minutes. Or if you prefer, you can walk for 30 minutes.
