Caceres - Badajoz - Lisbon - Faro

Please note that there is currently no train running between Caceres and Lisbon.

The Lusitânia Comboio train that used to run this route is now running via Vilar Formoso. I believe this is due to imminent construction works on the new high speed rail link between Lisbon and Madrid.


You can find a link to the Lisbon to Faro rail timetable on my blog here:

Scroll down on the right hand side panel till you come to:

Portuguese Railways - 2008 - Lisbon - Algarve Faro/Lagos Timetable

Click on it and you will be able to download the latest timetable in pdf format.

Please note that the autumn/winter timetable will only be online after September.

You will probably need to get a bus from Caceres to Badajoz and then another one to Lisbon.

Alternatively, you could try getting a bus from Caceres to Seville and then the twice daily DAMAS bus from Seville to Faro.

Cubsur has timetables for the latter route here:

For Caceres - Badajoz - Lisbon try

They have several daily service between Caceres and Badajoz and at present at least two daily service between Badajoz and Lisbon.

This company also has several services a day between Badajoz and Lisbon.

Check the timetables in October as the winter schedules are not yet available.
