The North Station (Spanish: Estación del Norte, Valencian: Estació del Nord) is the main railway station in Valencia, Spain. It is located in the city centre next to the Plaza de Toros de Valencia, the city's bullring, and 200m from the town hall. It has connections with Metrovalencia lines 3 and 5, and the city bus network.

This station is named after the CCHNE, the railway company that constructed it and opened it in 1917, which was later nationalized and renamed as RENFE and later on as Adif, the company that currently owns and runs it. It was declared Good of Cultural Heritage in 1987.

Dutch Symphonic Metal band Within Temptation performed at the station in July 2005 as a one-time event. The concert was filmed and broadcast on Spanish television.[1][2]
