Estacion de Principe Pio | Madrid

(Madrid) — On the western side of Madrid, just below the royal palace is a typical looking European train station, but inside it’s not.  The Estacion de Principe Pio was remodeled to incorporate all the metro and commuter rail stations, stacked up on top of each other like a toy train set, with trains criss-crossing above and below you in all different directions.  Some of the tracks seem dormant, then all of a sudden a train comes shooting through.  Definitely recommend killing a while here just taking it all in.  Really is cool.

This train station was extremely cool, with trains criss-crossing at multiple levels all at the same time.  I stood there for nearly an hour, mesmerized….
