It was a real treat to be able to see this historical but 'non-functional' station. The whole Chamberi-Malasana-Tribunales district was so wonderfully resonant of history anyway, the phantom Metro Station was simply the icing on the cake.
This free museum occupies a Metro station that was closed in 1966 when the line was modernised and the station was found to be in the wrong place. There is a 10 minute long introductory film in Spanish but still easy to understand. The platform...More
I’ve been to the station, now a museum opened three or four days a week, about five times in the past few years. It used to have a wonderful churrería right outside, which made the station a great place to visit on Saturday mornings. Alas,...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.
