Spanish rail company Renfe has announced the high-class service will return to Andalucia in April.

They will offer services across the region including Jaen, Malaga, Cordoba, Granda, Cadiz and Sevilla. 

There will be two routes, one starting in Malaga and finishing in Sevilla from April 7.

Yesterday, March 31, the opposite route set off from Sevilla to Malaga. 

The Al-Andalus train is formed of 15 carriages, five of which are authentic from the 1920s. 

They were built in France and were originally used by members of the British royal family to go on holiday in the French Riviera.
