I'm in Lisabon right now for a short visit. Among other things I also used the metro quite a bit. Overall it's quite nice with clean, well designed station. Only one complaint - seems like the train (???) is generating quite strong and very unpleasant smell. Any idea what's that about?

What kind of smell? Does it smell like egg-farts like the Paris metro sometimes does? I have no idea what causes that, but it's nasty.

That's exactly the right description... I haven't used Paris metro enough to encounter it there, so it was my first time anywhere.

Was that somewhere near the Terreiro do Paço station?

What's not to love about the Metro? Clean, colourful stations. Really beautiful.

In Paris I thought it was because of the rubber tyres, because I have never come across that scent in another subway, and I had never come across another rubber-tyred subway. But if Lisbon also has it, maybe it's no the tyres...

In Vienna some stations smell like butyric acid. There it is the fortification agent in the surrounding earth that is there to stabilize it, to prevent damage on buildings above. They only figured out later that the smell is an unexpected side effect. But that would be if the stations smell like that, not hte carriages.

So, i've searched the entire thread, and except the Paulo2004's list of some underground art on July 25th, 2005, i didn't find someone pointing out something that i really like to see: quotations and symbols.

Something we might expect from a city with such literary and culture merits.

So, let's go to the quotations. We travel to centre-north, towards the Cidade Universitária station, place of the largest campus of Portugal.



Quote from one of our best, XIX century realist-naturalist poet Cesario Verde. He wants to search the perfection of things for eternity.


Both pictures from http://aventuralx.blogspot.pt

Famous Socrates "citizen of the world" sentence, quote by Plutarch.

So we now travel south, to one of the most beatiful (and arguably the most enigmatic) station: Parque. This station was one of the original line inaugurated in 1959, but was very updated in 1994, and some national and international artists honored the Portuguese discoveries, the Universal Human Rights Declaration and Aristides de Sousa Mendes. This station has about 450 thousand traditional azulejos (tiles), all of them hand painted. We talk about them a little later.

Camões, of course, only writes about the truth (the Lusiads, V, 89). In the upright side there's a small quotation of Parmenides and in the center-left, above the main Camões quote, there's Socrates reminding Crito to pay their debts to Asclepius (Plato, Phaedo).

Fernando Pessoa (Bernardo Soares) has a good headache.

pre-Socratic Heraclitus and his music.

Gilles Deleuze, french philosopher, about Ethics.

Parmenides, for I shall return there again.

Ancient Greek aphorism "Know thyself".

Nietzsche's inner caos and dancing star, above i think is Pessoa; however i think Pessoa wrote "Pondero" and not "Penso" (i do not ponder, i dream).


http://cpantiguidade.wordpress.com/2...-42/imagem-03/

Parmenides about Eros, in Portuguese and French.

I forgot this one:


http://www.inscrire.com

This is basically the article 5 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in Portuguese
(No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment), written over and over again.

There is also a quote by the Argentian J. D. Nasio. I wonder if there are more quotes? This station is like a puzzle.

Now we travel a little bit eastside, to the Saldanha station:


abouticebergs.blogspot.pt

Almada Negreiros is everywhere in the station. Here, about the greatest asset of the people: the language.







I entered a bookstore.


all above from http://horizonteartificial.blogs.sapo.pt


http://turistaemcasa.blogspot.pt/


http://www.rtp.pt

Art is knowledge.


largodamemoria.blogspot.pt


ressabiator.wordpress.com

There are a few more, but i couldn't find good pictures. Next, the symbols.

Also: in one of the Cidade Universitária quotes (but in another part of the station), one of the Ns is upside down. I'll try and post a photo of that soon.
