Just started to think about a VdlP trip over Easter 2020. Thinking of flying to Madrid and then getting a train to Córbodo on Good Friday before getting train then to Sevilla on Easter Saturday. Can´t seem to find my answer online and it´s too early to book so can anyone tell me if Renfe trains run on Good Friday and Easter Saturday albeit a reduced service?

Are you refering to "Córdoba"? The sintaxis is not important in the forum, but it is in the reservation webpage.
Madrid to Córdoba and Sevilla is a major line, served even by high speed trains (AVE). And yes, trains run in "Semana santa", but a reservation woud be wise.

Thank you and yes, I meant to spell Córdoba! In fact I meant to say Malaga not Madrid!! I always book in advance online but before I made any definite travel plans I just wanted to check the train situation. I assume there is a reduced service over Easter?

Hi @laineylainey - have you figured out what the train service is like over Easter weekend? I'm also flying to Madrid on Good Friday and need to get to Irun. I'm struggling to get Renfe timetables in English

Hi @hielienie , I think it is a normal service but I will be checking when I get home. Just finishing the VdlP on Saturday.
I will send you the timetable when I can get it but it might be some months!
I will send you a link for current times in English.

I tried to book my train from Segovia to Madrid Easter Week, but they're not booking yet. However, they did ask for my email and supposedly will send me a note as soon as booking is possible.

Camino de Santiago planned for end April 2020 now 2021
I'm going to Spain tomorrow and will be travelling from Malaga to Seville for a couple of days. I was not able to book the fast AVE Train until about three weeks before the travel date, some of the slower trains were available about six weeks before.

From past experience it can be 90 days or 60 days, before the travel date, depending on the journey. But then sometimes it has been much less than 60 days, Renfe has a funny "ticket tranche release" system!

Hi there, just thought you would like to know I have booked my Renfe trains for my Easter trip and used my tarjeta dorada. Hopefully this is the Renfe English link!
Normal service as far as I can see.
Good luck with your Camino.
