  • Great opportunity to see the great building and choose between all this great museums. Go early in the morning when it is not so crowded. Good for a rainy days to enjoy the coulture and stay dry!
  • The city hall of Madrid. A great palace built 100 years ago that maintains its beauty and is impressive to see. One of Madrid landmarks. Great view of the historic city centre from the observation deck (it costs 3€ to get up there) and very cool exhibitions inside the building. Must see!
  • Stunningly beautiful. A lot of renovation occurring at the moment. Some 'upgrades' could be much more in keeping
  • Walked by this multiple times and photographed from various angles beautiful building and certainly a sight to behold. Not really sure of the purpose of it but beauty is enough for. The fountain with Cybele is in front of it. Really awesome .
  • Really nice view from the top. Expositions during this week are not very spectacular.
