The city of Palma de Mallorca decided a few years ago to become a real capital metropolis and be in with the big ones.
A one line underground system, the Metro, was duly built at a total cost of 312,000,000 €, and proudly inaugurated in April, 2007. The line consists of 9 stations, connecting central Palma (Plaça Espanya) with the Universitat de les Illes Balears. But due to heavy flooding, the Metro service had to be closed down in September, 2007. The fun and the pride had barely lasted 150 days.
Now, there are rumours that services will be resumed soon, but nobody knows when. The estación in Son Fuster Vell (shown here) remained closed last week, oblivious to its fate.
