  • Imprescindible su visita / Your visit is essential
  • Extraordinary architecture and grand plaza !
  • the buildings and facilities are great; we visited an art exposition; still have to go and see concerts there!
  • Despite having been in oblivion for many years never stopped being an imposing architectural work. Of the highlights of the 20th century... and perhaps European Spanish. I highly recommend everyone visiting. It has no waste. Oh, and if possible, climb the tower to enjoy excellent views.
