Coming from Seville by train

Hi,

I’m taking a train from Seville, Spain and going towards Valencia, Spain. I would like to visit Gibraltar for one day and possibly stay overnight. What is the best way to make a quick stop because my train doesn’t stop at this town. Closest town it stops is Algeciras, Spain and I don’t know how to get to Gibraltar from Algeciras, Spain.

Thank you.

Going to Gibraltar will not make for a quick stop if you try & do it by train

You are probably better off getting the direct bus from Sevilla to La Linea which takes 4hrs

Then walk across the border.

Gibraltar is not in the Schengen zone, & you will need to check visa requirements.

For the train option

There is no direct train from Sevilla to Algeciras, you have to go to Antequera & change trains. (4.5hour journey)

Algeciras to La Linea by bus

Bus destination is Linea de Concepcion, La

If you do want to take the train, the nearest stop to Gibraltar is Algeciras which is 30 min drive away. There are buses from Algeciras to La Linea, the Spanish town right by Gibraltar. The bus station in La Linea is a few minutes walk from the border. Or you could get a taxi from Algeciras train station to the border.
