An Historic Journey on Rails

Luxury Travel Through Spain > An Historic Journey on Rails

Al Andalus is presumably the most spacious and luxurious tourist train in the world. It is truly an authentic palace on rails.

Its cars once rattled along the tracks that cross France from Calais to the French Riviera with members of the British monarchy as illustrious passengers.

This palace of the 1920s is now a first class accommodation that combines the marks of a prestigious history with modern comforts of the XXI century.

For a few days, you will stay in a unique luxury train, where the past has left its noble footprint of glamour and vintage fragrance in every corner, to experience a collection of adventures and unforgettable memories as you tour the most historical cities of Andalusia.
