What I can see

Agia Varvara metro station favours the influx of natural light up to the platforms level, thanks to the glass facades of the ticket level and the escalators. The dominant materials are granite, stainless steel, coated and uncoated concrete, and the wall covering materials are sound-absorbing. The lighting is modern and is based on a study. In the centre of the ticket level, we see an ancient clay pipeline and a model of the tunnel in which it was found. There is also a map of the city, a model of the pipeline site and a screen which shows the process of excavation and transport of the findings.

What I can't see

The carved tunnel with the pipeline was not found at this exact spot. The pipeline had to be moved a few metres so that construction works could continue and the pipeline could also be exhibited.
