La Torre Outlet Zaragoza has an area of influence of nearly 3 million potential shoppers connected by AVE. The catchment area comprises a larger territory compared to other outlet centres, because Northern Spain is so far an undeveloped outlet region. It includes the cities of Zaragoza, Utebo, Cuarte de Huerva, Calatayud, Huesca, Ejea de los Caballeros, Tarazona, Tudela, Fraga, Calahorra, Alcañiz, Barbastro, Tafalla, Monzón, Lleida, Arnedo, Teruel and Jaca.
Every year, around 70 million vehicles see La Torre as they drive along the highway N232, the motorway A8, the AP-68 and the A-2, one of the most important highways, which connects Zaragoza with Madrid and Barcelona. Furthermore, La Torre Outlet Zaragoza benefits from perfect access to public transport and an own train station with connections to the AVE Renfe high-speed train, which reaches Madrid in approximately 80 minutes and Barcelona in around 90 minutes. There are up to 19 trains a day in each direction for Madrid and 12 for Barcelona.
Alta Velocidad Española (AVE) is a service of high-speed rail in Spain operated by Renfe Operadora, the Spanish national railway company at speeds of up to 310 km/h. Alta Velocidad Española translates to "Spanish High Speed", but the initials are also a words game, as "ave" means "bird". As of June 2013, the Spanish AVE system is the longest HSR network in Europe with 3,100 km and the second largest in the world, after China's.
The Shopping Village has an own train station which connects the location to the AVE hig speed railway to Barcelona and Madrid.
