Architectural structures

Puente Cal y Canto is an underground metro station on the Line 2 of the Santiago Metro, in Santiago, Chile. Originally named Mapocho, it was renamed to Puente Cal y Canto shortly after its opening. This name is taken from the former bridge on the Mapocho River, whose remains were found during the construction of the station. The station's platforms walls have a decoration that resembles the architecture of the mentioned bridge. Until 2004 the station was the northern terminus of the Line 2.
