ALMERIA railway station has been ranked among the finest in Spain.
The magazine Cultura Inquieta put the city’s late 19th century train station in seventh place in a list of the most handsome stations in the country, which is topped by a building in historic Toledo.
The magazine’s blurb about the provincial station points out that while the structure was constructed between 1890 and 1893 it did not start operating until 1895.
It also points out that the building features iron and glass, which was very typical of industrial architecture of the period.
In 2006 the building underwent a major reform, including the construction of a new annex.
