We can distinguish two different stages in the design and management of the constructed spaces of the Lisbon Metro network: the first one, in which there is unity, coherence and systematization of construction solutions, materials used and spatial proportions throughout all stations of the network; and the second one, in which each station is a unique commissioning, project and construction process. The eclecticism that we can observe today came together with the expansion moments of the network’s territorial coverage, which remains mostly within the administrative limits of the capital city. The visit takes place on a four-line journey from station to station to identify the several stages of transformation and the most relevant architectural and artistic qualities. Among these, we highlight the tile collection that has been developed since the original project. The various lines can be visited in trips starting at different stations: Oriente Metro Station (Avenida D. João II), Lumiar Metro Station (Rua Cordeiro Ferreira), Telheiras Metro Station (Rua Professor Francisco Gentil), Parque Metro Station (Avenida António Augusto de Aguiar).
