The second most important Seville bus station is Estación del Prado. Fortunately, it is very well connected with the Metro and the city center.
Although its full name is Estación de Prado de San Sebastián, everybody knows it by Estación del Prado which is much shorter.
This bus station is located to the southeast of the city center, on Plaza Prado de San Sebastián, and it was inaugurated in 1943.
This bus station mainly serves destinations in Andalucía (Cádiz, Jerez, Ronda).
In addition to this, the bus station is also an intercambiador de transporte, or public transportation hub.
