San Ignazio[1] (formerly San Inazio) is a station of line 1 and line 2 of Metro Bilbao. It is located in the San Ignazio-Elorrieta neighbourhood, part of the Deustu district; the station is in close proximity to the San Ignazio Sports Center and the Elorrieta football field. It was opened on 11 November, 1995.

Station layout[edit]

San Ignazio is the only one of the Metro Bilbao underground stations to have three tracks and an island platform; the station is bigger due to it being the last of the shared section between lines 1 and 2 northbound, with each line splitting into a different tunnel after the station. Also, unlike the other underground stations within the city, it does not have the typical cavern-shaped layout, it was designed by Norman Foster.
