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 Metro since its inception. The old tiling, adverts, signs, ticket offices etc. are all still... More

This is a Madrid hidden gem, and it is absolutely free! Andén 0 is the old Camberí Metro Station that retains the charm of yesteryear. All the old Metro accoutrements are here, as well as beautiful artwork preserved on white subway tiles. The tracks are still in use and rush past you as you are down on the platform -... 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 closed to the public for decades. I just had a glance at it as the... More

It was free and quite enjoyable. I particularly liked all the old adverts and posters, it was like going back in time!

We chose to visit Anden 0 and we were positively surprised by it. It is for free, and if you go at the o´clock times they offer a guided tour around the site. We had our visit with Adrian, and he was wonderful: funny, knowledgeable and approchable. He not only provided us with an interesting insight about the station, but... More

A real history lesson learning about the metro's first line and experiencing the hundred year old station. Free entry and guided tours are given where you can learn a lot more. Very interesting!

Free exhibit. Entrance is controlled by security as only a certain number of visitors allowed in at a time. Not very large but interesting decor and posters of the original station. 1919. Very atmospheric and historical. Entrance from modern glass atrium at street level.

You can walk down to the old subway station and can also see a short film strip about the station (in Spanish). We were only there for 5 or ten minutes. If you are in the area, fine, but don't go out of your way.

This is not to be missed. "Platform 0" has been restored to the style of the times when the metro was inaugurated and it is really interesting to get a flavour of how travel was underground was back then. It is even more characterful with the trains rattling through. Great free attraction, even if you're not interested in transport as... More

Free. Located 5 minutes from Afonso Martinez metro stop. Well worth a visit if you are in the area. This metro station closed in 1966 and opened as museum in 2008, though metro trains still run on the tracks.

Staying in Chamberi

Neighbourhood Profile
Chamberi
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.
