This day will start with a quick visit to AZAFT’s museum site at Casetas outside Zaragoza. Then it’s back to Delicias station for the train onwards westbound.

This is one of only three days in the entire trip without a border crossing. The reason: the trains across Spain and into Portugal are so irregular that there is no other way to get any further in a day, and night trains across Spain have all been abolished.

There is one daily Barcelona (ES)-Vigo Alvia train that goes via Zaragoza (where I will board it), and then via Pamplona, Leon and Ourense (pictured) to Vigo. 11 hours 33 minutes on this train.
