Like so many buildings in Spain - dilapidated but full of character.

This photo was taken on 8 June 2008 while walking the old coast road from Portbou in Spain to Cerbère in France. The large building in the background is the train station, and beside it is the train yard.

If you travel down the Mediterranean coast - either by train or car - Portbou is the first town over the border. The short train trip from Cerbère to Portbou is through a tunnel in the mountain and takes 4 minutes. If you drive the winding road over the mountain, it takes about 20 minutes (somewhat longer if you suffer from vertigo). If you have no problem with heights, the views are incredible. The motorway (which is further inland), bypasses the coast altogether and heads straight down to Barcelona.

As ridiculous as it may seem, there are only 3 trains a day from Cerbère to Portbou: 14:24, 18:08 and 20:07. These run 7 days a week. There is talk that the coastal train will close when the TGV line from Perpignan to Barcelona opens in a year or two.
