    Hi Adriana,

    For the requested itinerary, your best option would just be to purchase regular point-to-point tickets.

    You would purchase tickets by searching a route under 'Book  Train Tickets' on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com. Generally, trains in Spain can be booked once within 90 days of an intended departure date.

    Madrid to Seville

    From Madrid to Seville, you would take an AVE high-speed train. These are direct trains, so you can just do one search from Madrid to Seville when you go to purchase the tickets.

    Seville to Granada

    For years there has been ongoing construction on the rail line outside of Granada. As the construction goes on, there are no direct trains to or from Granada. Trains only go as far Antequera, from where passengers are switched to a bus that will take them into Granada.

    For a trip from Seville to Granada, you can still purchase one through ticket that would cover you on the train and the bus. Therefore, when you go to purchase tickets for this leg of your trip, you can just do one search from Seville to Granada.

    Granada to Madrid

    You would board the bus to Antequera at the station in Granada. In Antequera, you would board a high-speed AVE train that would take you up to Madrid.

    When purchasing tickets for this part of your trip, you would actually have to break up your search in Antequera. Therefore, you would do one search from Granada to Antequera and then another search for trains from Antequera to Madrid

    Madrid to Barcelona

    To get from Madrid to Barcelona, you would take a high-speed AVE train. These are direct trains, so you can just do one search from Madrid to Barcelona when you go to purchase the tickets.
