Madrid to Castelo Branco

Train is not possible. At present there is only one train per day from Madrid to Lisbon which runs via Vila Formoso.

Bus is also not really an option for a same day trip as you would have to go via Lisbon.

Have a look at this recent post on my blog:


Hire Car is your only option to do it the same day, but be aware that inter-country drop-offs in Europe are very expensive. You would probably have to drop the vehicle off in Spain afterwards.

Madrid Barajas Airport to Castelo Branco by road is approximately 409 km – about 5 hours drive.
