A Guide to Malaga's Metro - Metro de Málaga

The construction of Malaga's Metro has taken five years of hard work and a certain amount of disruption for the citizens of the city, with blocked roads, noise and directional changes in streets, but as Henry Wadsworth said, "Good things come to those who wait". 

The official launch was welcomed on July 30th, 2014
