  • On Sunday we had ahead of the Town Hall and saw that you could visit. Very nice architectural monument. In addition is a centre open with exhibitions, zones of rest, area of reading... Great to visit or to hang out. Not we climb to the vantage point, you can enter by paying a minimum consumption of €4.5

  • The building itself is a SideShow, but what really is the mirador that sits on top. There are time constraints, many people

  • Madrid slowly but inevitably "can hold near the soul of" everyone who visited this city. It overloads the memory of various pictures-impressions of architecture, monuments, museums, bars and random encounters-conversations. But for me, the most powerful symbol of Madrid; picture, constantly pop-up in memory, became this wonderful beautiful white building on the Plaza Cibeles. Let local, admiring or chuckling, called him a "wedding cake", let the critics and connoisseurs of his congestion got twisted décor (building created by the Spanish architect, smiksovavshim styles neobarochnyj and Spanish modern). But what the hell, the difference in what style it was created at the beginning of the last century, when the Palace is embarrassingly beautiful! It was discovered as the Palace of communications. How to write in guidebooks, in 1930 he sets out year post and telegraph building in Madrid was overwhelmed to the point that the new post Palace of telecommunications was called "Nuestra Señora de las Comunicaciones", i.e. "the Virgin". Although I meet record that this magnificent Palace of communications gave himself the name Leon Trotsky that in 30-ies visited Madrid and was taken aback by the monumentality and beauty of the Palace. The building now is the City Hall of Madrid, vyvesivshaja on its façade a huge poster with the words addressed to refugees: Refugees Welcome ". This poster (as "label" official institutions) and the fact that insufficient information and podpitalas' before the trip in Madrid gave me the opportunity (fool! just 2 euros!) to get on a tour inside this building. And yet it turns out to be positioned and cultural centre with temporary exhibitions, café, etc. well, such a mistake-an occasion to reflect on another trip to Madrid!

  • The old palace of the post has been refurbished and it is now used as a multi-floor exhibition space where people can also stop to relax, read or study. The exhibition are almost always free and interesting (now there is one on artsy comics and another about historical ruins in Europe). The building is worth visiting even just because of its architecture (both inside and outside). It also hosts a restaurant with terrace on the 7th floor, but I never ate there.
  • There's art exhibitions areas to relax and hang out. And for 2 euro you can go to the top and enjoy a. I've view of the city. The exhibitions are totally free !
  • One of my favorite places in Madrid. It is the old post office that they turned into a museum, part of it is free and there is a part you need to pay for. There is also desks and couches to chill at and there is an amazing view from the tower!!!
  • Pretty decent views but nothing spectacular. Worth the 2 euros per person. The building itself is very impressive. From the library floor, if you look up, there are beautiful glass ceilings. They might have an electrical problem because any time we touched the metal handrails we got shocked.
  • As an view of asian this is very typical type of western style(not usa). Open area and big and historical type(not sure) of building. Looks nice enough.
