Enjoying Andalusia by the Famous Al Andalus Train

By Frederick Pollard Subscribe to RSS | June 5th 2012 | Views:

There are many ways to enjoy Andalusia. Most tourists play it safe with the normal mode of tour buses or rental cars. Some adventurous tourists may choose a more scenic option: lounge cars.

These are the famous train options to view Andalusia.

Stylish and comfortable

One of the more exciting ways to view Andalusia is the “Al Andalus” train with lounge cars that were built around 1928 to 1930. The Al Andalus is a special tourist train that is spacious and stylish offering comfort and best of services throughout the journey across Andalusia.

The Al Andalus has several lounges that are designed to serve meals and drinks with on board live entertainment. There is a piano lounge car where live music is available every night as guests sit to relax or chat over a glass of wine or juice.

There are large windows to look out as one gets comfortable on one of those cozy armchairs. The service carriages are available for service on a twenty-four hour basis for the convenience of guests.

The Al-Andalus can accommodate 64 passengers with its 20 superior suites and 12 standard suites which have air conditioning, mini bar, full bathroom and twin beds.

Tour journey

The Al-Andalus goes to many major cities in Andalusia such as Granada, Ronda, Cádiz, Jerez and Sanlucar. Guests can enjoy the scenic views through the large carriage windows while having their meals; the impressive mountain range greets the guests upon arriving at Ronda.

The magnificent El Tajo canyon holds Ronda as it perches majestically with a bridge. Ronda offers a rich bullfighting history that stretches back to the Roman epoch. Guests would view bullrings and other astounding sights around the mountains with lunch on the train. Cadiz will welcome the guests with more spectacular sights and historical monuments before guests turn in for the night.

The Al-Andalus will take the guests to Jerez where they can visit bodegas and taste some fine sherry; this is the local wine produce that is renowned worldwide. Al-Andalus guests would be enlightened on the wine production processes and wine types with some tasting of fine sherry.

Guests can also enjoy some time at the Equestrian Art School to watch trained horses performing. There is a nearby town, Sanlucar de Barrameda, which is worth a visit as well as dropping in on Doñana National Park. This is Europe’s largest ecological reserve that has been proclaimed a World heritage site.

The afternoon can be a delightful cruise on River Guadalquivir before the Al-Andalus takes the guests to Sevilla. There are many impressive attractions here; the bell-tower Giralda; the Alcázar; the Cathedral; the Tower of Gold and others.
