Lisbon

Lisbon

Works of contemporary art have been included in all metro stations [metrolisboa.pt 1]. Often are Portuguese tiles involved in some way [metrolisboa.pt 2].

Some stations in Lisbon are dedicated to themes. Parque station symbolizes the achievements of the Portuguese discoverers [inscrire.com].

Cabo Ruivo station in Lisbon looks like a space station with its skeleton-like arches. The wall decoration, in contrast, resembles caveman paintings.
