Benaoján - Railway Station

Benaojan  railway station

Benaojan station is one of the most popular on the line, thanks to its proximity to this famous sausage-making village.



MA-505 leads to adjacent village Montecorto in the natural park and MA-555 to Ronda, skirting the natural park, whilst the MA-507 crosses the river and leads up to Jimera de Libar and the Gaucin - Ronda A-369.  

There are three trains a day in each direction for Algeciras, Ronda and Granada. The station is manned and in good condition with ticket office, waiting room, and toilets. Two platforms are currently used. Upgraded signaling allows this station to be used as a passing place for trains on the single track.

The Cueva del Gato (Cat's Cave) is a well-known local attraction and the railway line passes the mouth of the cave. It is a 2km walk from Benaojan station.

The original 1892 station building houses the waiting room and the ticket office. The single-storey pitched-roof white building with Andalucian yellow trim around doors and windows is well maintained.   You can see the original Linley & Co of Birmingham Improved Platform Lamp iron wall brackets.  A wood-fringed canopy, attached to the platform and supported on wrought-iron pillars spanning the adjacent platform, lends the station an 'anglo', or some would say, colonial-Indian look. The familiar brick goods shed with circular window opening in the pitched-roof gable can be seen near the station.
