Atocha railway station

Atocha railway station in one of the major train stations in Madrid. It is very exciting to see the lovely tropical garden inside the station. However, the station has a tragic past, as it was one of the main sites of the 2004 Madrid bombings. As a result, security check at the station is now very strict and similar to the airport security check. For example X-ray machines are used to scan all pieces of luggage.
