Lisbon is indeed a beautiful city choc full of traditional architecture, azulejos (tiles) murals and calçada streets. Contemporary architecture seems to shoot up overnight, adding to the rich culture of the city. Yet, not too many people notice the unique architecture and vibrant artwork of the underground spaces we know as the Metro.
Ever since the construction of the first stations in the 1950s, Metropolitano de Lisboa strived to make the underground environment as pleasing as possible to the user. And today, Lisbon’s underground stations are considered some of the most beautiful in the world.
