Boring tour with Spanish guide. Audioguide is available in French and English. The English Audioguide is in terrible English and hardly understandable. The tour is only 1 room (central waiting room) and 5 minutes on 'platform'. Save the money for a ice-cream or something like...More

The station is impressive so it's really worth the while to do the tour. You can only visit the main room, everything else is being closed. The building bears a lot of interesting facts and stories, though I did have a feeling that the guide...More

We didn’t do the tour since we had 3 little children who would get bored quickly by going in just one room. We explored warehouses and rooms and asked what must have been in the rooms. A good way to entertain the children’s imaginations.

I found Canfranc Estacion fascinating. It is amazing to think they built something like this high up in the Pyrenees. You can only enter with a guide for 3 Euros who gives the tour in Spanish. But for people that do not speak Spanish a...More
