Porto’s underground is an ambivalent experience of the inside and the outside. The network took advantage of many already existing railway tracks, only going underground in more dense parts of the city. Inside, on the underground tunnels (remote to the city), or outside (in the exterior which is the interior of urban life), the tube ride begins and ends while the carriages keep circulating with thousands of passengers in an apparent perpetual movement. At the end of the day (that can also be the end of the night), the empty carriages travel to their secret address. The park with materials and repair facilities, and the command and control post is the place of retreat and recovery of the carriages that circulate in the more than 70 km of network, in a vast complex that is now open to special visits. The exclusive visit to the epicentre of Porto’s underground network is an opportunity to get to know where it all starts, the starting point we normally can’t reach.
