Description

The Estación de Pacífico (Pacific Station) is a subway station of the Madrid Metro. It was on Line 1 and was inaugurated in 1923. In 1961, the extension of the trains from 4 to 6 cars and the extension of the platforms from 60 to 90 m was planned. The renovation included the opening of two new entrance to Doctor Esquerdo pares and to calle de Sánchez Barcaiztegui. By this change the original entrance hall was closed off in 1966 and thus preserved. The historic entrance was later restored and is now open to the public.

The historic lobby is one of numerous underground museums which are related to the Madrid Metro. They are called Andén Cero (Platform Zero) and are managed by Museos Metro de Madrid (Madrid Metro Museums). The lobby ist best found through the entrance from Sánchez Barcaiztegui, 2, Madrid. As it is inside the station a ticket for public transport is required.
