Montreal

Montreal

More than 50 stations are decorated with over 100 works of public art, such as sculptures, stained glass and murals by noted artists from Québec. The city encourages this since 1967, one year after the opening of the system [stm.info].

Some of Montreal's stations seem to be works of modern art themselves. Entrance buildings are often as well designed as the underground parts of the stations.
