Station 0 or the old Chambari station is an interesting stop in the Northern part of the city. Granted my wife and I are fans of metros and their history, but I think anyone who is interested in history and architecture, will want to stop here. The only other English review complained that it is a little hard to find. Well it is an abandoned subway station that was sealed off in the 60's so of course it is not as obvious as a functioning station. I took a picture of the glass and metal entrance that was created to have access, so that way anyone looking should know what they are looking for. First of all the entrance fee is free and includes a pretty cool 20 minute video (in Spanish of course) that discusses the history of the Madrid metro. Since it is the second largest after London, I found it pretty fascinating how it has grown over the years. This station has been restored to reflect how a station may appear in the 1920's, complete with all the fixtures and advertisements from that era. It is a fun escape that sends you back in time for a little while and is a great detour when you find yourself in the neighborhood.
