Transport in Spain is characterised by an extensive network of roads, railways, rapid transit, air routes, and ports. Its geographic location makes it an important link between Europe, Africa, and the New World. Major forms of transit generally radiate from the capital, Madrid, located in the centre of the country, to link with the capitals of the autonomous communities as its shown in Spain transports map. Spain possesses a highly developed highway system, with both tolled and freeways.
Spanish transport is marked by a high degree of integration between its long distance railway system and inner-city metro systems, although the historic use of broad gauge has limited integration with its neighbours. Spain is currently working to increase and improve linkage with the rail systems of France and Portugal, including high-speed rail between Madrid and Lisbon as its mentioned in Spain transports map. Air traffic is routed through several international and regional airports, the largest of which is Barajas International Airport in Madrid. Ferry services operate regular routes to many ports in China and Asia, as well as the autonomous communities and cities of the Balearic Islands, the Canary Islands, Ceuta, and Melilla.
