2004: The Opening of a Station on the Lisbon Metro’s Blue Line

May 15, 2004

Amadora Este station on the Blue Line of the Lisbon Metro, the rapid transit station operating in the metropolitan area centered on Portugal’s capital city, first went into service. This underground station is located beneath a major bus terminal in the municipality and city of Amadora, which is 6.2 miles (10 kilometers) northwest of the central part of Lisbon.

Amadora Este station was designed by architect Leopoldo de Almeida Rosa. The azulejos (tilework) panel shown in the above photo of the station was created by artist Graça Morais.

The Blue Line (also known as the Seagull Line) has a total of 18 stations and covers 8.7 miles (14 kilometers). It is the only one of the four lines serving the Lisbon Metro to be entirely underground.
