Guarda, Portugal to Madrid


We want to travel by train from Guarda in Portugal to Madrid in Spain early April 2008 - is this possible?


Yes it is possible to travel by train from Guarda in Portugal to Madrid.

However, you would have to change trains in either Salamanca (& spend the night) or travel via Lisbon, which is the better option.

There is a departure from Guarda to Lisbon as follows:

IC Nº512 Guarda 13:22 Lisboa Oriente 17:21 Price € 23,00

There is then a departure from Lisbon Oriente to Madrid at 22:09 arriving Madrid the next morning at 08:49.

There is also a bus operated by Eurolines that leaves Guarda at 12:30 daily, arriving Madrid Est. Sur at 19:30.

You can find a link to the Eurolines timetable on my blog at:
