    Portugal - Metropolitano de Lisboa

    Metropolitano de Lisboa-Portugal

    The Lisbon Metro is the metro
    system of Lisbon, Portugal. Opened in December 1959, it was the first subway system in Portugal.

    As of 2012, the four Lisbon subway lines total 45.5 kilometres in length and comprise 55 stations.

    The architecture and decor of an underground station is a key element for the well being of passengers, and art works to make travel more appealing. Lisbon Metro is one of the various underground systems in the world where art is best represented, much like the Moscow Metro in Russia, Montreal Metro in Canada and the Stockholm metro in Sweden. From the beginning, there was a concern to make a smooth visual transition between surface and underground. Architect Francisco Keil do Amaral (1910-1975) designed a station model, which was used as a template for all stations built until 1972. In this model, the decor was very moderate, with smooth but firm lines, much like the Portuguese political regime at the time. The original eleven stations, except Avenida, had artwork by painter Maria Keil (1914-2012).
