Seville–Santa Justa railway station is the main railway station in Seville, Andalusia. It was opened in 1991[2] when the Madrid–Seville high-speed rail line opened. It serves about 9.25 million passengers a year.

Seville's first main railway station was called Plaza de Armas railway station. It was on the banks of the Guadalquivir river. It was a terminus station for trains heading north of the city. A southern terminus called the Cádiz station served southbound trains. As part of the preparations for the arrival of the Seville Expo '92, the rail tracks on the river bank were removed and the area redeveloped.[3] The Madrid–Seville high-speed rail line opened in 1992 with the new Santa Justa railway station connected via a tunnel to the underground San Bernardo railway station. There are now through services north to south.
