Metro’s logo, an icon of Madrid

Architect Antonio Palacios is the “father” of the underground’s logo and the station designs.

Designs by Galician architect Antonio Palacios live on 100 years later. The rhombus has evolved since then, but always keeping its essence and originality, and the design of the stations and other spaces can still be admired in several spots within the Metro de Madrid network. This is our tribute to the Metro de Madrid’s architect.
