Additionally, the Malaga-María Zambrano Train Station operates fast trains to Madrid, Barcelona and other capital cities. Malaga also has one of the best road networks of the country, with highways and toll motorways leading to any point of Costa del Sol ad Spain. The price of a taxi from the airport or Malaga train station is approx € 80.
