It includes titles that recount the history of the Madrid metro

Metro de Madrid invites all users to browse around the extensive list of publications that deal with the subject of the metro. For this reason, with just one click, every web surfer who enters the website will find a new section under the title of “Metro in books” which presents a list of over 30 publications showing different retrospectives of the metro, technical, social and historic questions of great utility to anyone anxious to learn what publications exist on the Madrid metro system.

The proposal focuses on over 30 publications that recount yet another part of the history of our metro. The full list may be found in the section “Metro in books” located in the section “Get to know us” at the website

Amongst the most notable publications, this selection includes titles that recount the history of the metro at different periods, such as “Metro de Madrid 1919-2009: 90 years of history”, “Metro de Madrid: seventy years of history”, “30 years, 30 histories, 30 instants” or “Destination Madrid: from the tram to light rail: 150 years of history”.

It also includes recent works, such as the book “La Plazuela de los Caños del Peral. Archaeological investigations at Ópera Station”, which shows the historical importance of the findings made at that Metro station as a result of the improvement works, which have led to the creation of a major museum project.

Anyone who is interested in learning technical aspects of the metro will also be able to see that the list of publications in this respect is extensive: “Metro and transport infrastructure in the Community Madrid: 1995-2003”, “The archaeological and palaeontological heritage in the Metro extension works 2003-2007” or “The Metro de Madrid Expansion Plan, 2003-2007: works, facilities and rolling stock” are to be found in the “Metro in books” section, which does not overlook either those more specialized publications, such as “Between Lucero and Argüelles: notes on Metro de Madrid”, “Príncipe Pío: renovation for intermodality” or “Metrosur”.
