The second Valencia train station, Joaquin Sorolla was constructed especially for housing the Spanish high-speed trains like AVE, Alvia, Euromed, and connecting Valencia with Madrid, Seville, Alicante, Barcelona, alongside other cities. The decision of building one more station in Valencia was conditioned by the fact that the main Valencia-Nord Station would have needed way more serious reconstruction works to make it suitable for accommodating the high-speed line. The Joaquin Sorolla train station was opened in 2010 and named in honor of a great painter, born in Valencia.
