The walls are covered with tiny mosaic tiles. Points of light ripple, shimmering from top to bottom, transforming the colors as they move. It is a true shower of color and is the marvel of the Toledo Metro station in the San Giuseppe quarter of Naples, all set within ample architectural space.

The station was designed by Spanish architect Oscar Tusquet and was awarded the ITA Prize (International Tunnelling Association) given for innovative uses of underground public spaces.

As noted in #6 of this series, Bastion in the Metro, get a ticket and take a tour of the #1 line of the Naples Metro; some of the stations are considered unique works of art world-wide.
