Out on the Tiles

Closed since 1966 the metro station Chamberí in Madrid was renovated and reopened as a museum in 2008. The tiled hallways, walls and platforms recall the craftmanship of those days.

  1. Great feel. I actually remember thinking how much character the metro stations in Spain had while I was visiting Madrid, esp compared to the metro stations here in New England. =)

    • Hola, yes, very interesting to see the difference between the older stations in Madrid and the newer ones; especially in the old ones there’s lots of interesting fresco’s, ruins that came exposed and are now museums in the stations and this Chamberí station takes you back to the sixties!
