This abandoned metro station in the 60’s is now an interesting museum worth stopping at. The walls have tiled designs and it’s very charming. Entry is free at various times.

Some amazing architecture particularly in the metro station. The RENFE station is a bit dated but OK. Some reasonable shopping options. Step outside to see the 4 towers. I got the train to Segovia which was amazing-go there

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
