Tarragona has two train stations. The first is located in the city centre and offers links to regional trains, as well as national and internal long-distance trains (to Valencia, Andalucia, Madrid and France). The second, located just 15 minutes from the centre, is the "Camp de Tarragona" High-Speed Train (AVE) Station, which opened its doors on 19 December 2006 and entails a major improvement in Tarragona's connections to the exterior, as well as its connection to Spain's high-performance lines. The new station gives rise to a wide range of rail links to Barcelona, Lleida, Saragossa, Madrid, Cordova, Seville and, soon, all Europe.
