The Railfan Guide to Spain and Portugal by George Drury Soft Cover 2006 100 Pages
INTRODUCTION
IBERIA, a squarish peninsula containing Spain and Portugal, hangs off the southwest corner of France. It's hard to combine
a visit to Spain and Portugal with a visit to any of the rest of Europe, even just to France. It's possible to touch a corner of Spain - Barcelona, for instance - on an if-this-is-Tuesday-it must-be-Belgian-National-Railways tour. I've done it, but I have no memory of that brief visit to Barcelona (and Barcelonans will tell you they live in Cataluna, not Spain).
If you had a whole month and the air fare to Paris were a lot less than the air fare to Madrid (or you were so wealthy it didn't matter), you could spend a few days in and around Paris, then take a train to Barcelona or Madrid. However, it's a day or a night each way. Even for TGVs it's 51/2 hours from Paris to the Spanish border at Irun and 6 hours from Paris to Port Bou. The overnight Talgo hotel trains take a few minutes less than 12 hours from Paris to Barcelona and 131/2 hours from Paris to Madrid. Spain and Portugal can easily fill two or three weeks.
