Came across this by accident when doing a search for unusual things to do in Madrid. Anden O (or Platform 0) is actually the old Chamberi Metro station built in early 1900's but was disused from 1966 until recently. It has been restored to its...More
I have found out about this museum just clicking around the hotel on google maps and what a surprise! The opening hours are quite short, but the entrance is free and every hour there is even a tour guide telling you the story of the...More
Its like going back in a time warp when you go into this museum. Beautifully preserved old metro station that has a real sense of history to it. Get there early to avoid queuing for ages to get in and avoid the Spanish guided tour...More
It's interesting to see that subway trains rattle by this abandoned station and the commuters don't even know it's there for the most part.
It's easy to get to by getting out at Iglesias metro station and walking two short blocks south to Plaza de...More
See an old metro stop as it was long ago. Free is always good. A person to tell you interesting stories and guide you through it's history is even better, and still free. It only takes about 30 min and there's not a ton to...More
A must for any rail enthusiast, this museum is a disused metro station that was closed down in the 1960s and can still be seen from metro trains passing through it. Tours run on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays but the museum is closed on other...More
This free attraction is well worth a visit. It will only take 30 minutes or so, but is a very interesting experience. The video was not subtitled in English, but Spanish. Despite that, it is easy to follow and charts the development of the Madrid...More

The tracks are...More
I remember one of my firsts visits to Madrid about 7 years ago. We were in the tube (underground/subway/metro) and my friend, who used to live in Madrid at the time, told me that we were gonna pass by a "ghost station" that had been...More
Multi-story residential buildings decorated with ornate balconies line the traditional, quiet, and pretty streets of Chamberí. Humble storefronts and neighbourhood taverns are scattered across the lower levels down every block, and here and there, there's a cluster of tables on the sidewalk. It isn't ever crowded, but people are always out, poking into the tiny bakeries, hardware stores, and tobacco shops, or
ducking into a bright, unadorned cerveceria to have a coffee or beer by the bar, flip through the paper, and check the sports score. The round Plaza Olavide, where the fairly regular network of streets breaks form, is among the most green and lively spots. Restaurants line its circumference and sought-after outdoor tables fill the center of the plaza, where people relax to the sounds of kids playing and street musicians' tunes.
