Whatever is the cheaper route. But that is just me.

If you're debating about using a day on your pass, I would take the bus. It won't be expensive and will probably save you some time, surprisingly. Spanish trains are okay but the coaches are great. But watch out for the badly dubbed movies, LOL! I had to sit through catalan-dubbed Pearl Harbor from Barcelona to Valencia, at full volume.

I would think that to take the bus to take the train, you'll end up spending more time than if you simply take the bus to Barcelona. Schedules don't always match up perfectly, and the more "connections" you have on an itinerary, the more down time. Plus the bigger chance something will get messed up...
