  • Inaugurated on March 11, 2007, on the occasion of the third anniversary of the Madrid bombings, we find it nothing more out of Atocha station. Consists of two parts: a large outer cylinder of glass and the interior, which is accessed from the station itself; a blue room with a great bubble where there is writing messages in several languages. Some years ago I visited it and the truth is that it was quite shocking. On my last visit to Madrid was closed, the bubble was deflated and dirt and trash was everywhere. One example of the shamelessness and the disinterest of our leaders.

  • The Atocha bombing Memorial is Atocha in the South-Eastern part of downtown Madrid in close proximity to the train station in the middle of a roundabout on a busy street. If you want closer to the 11 meter high and transparent acting cylinder should bring nimble feet and a portion of courage. Rewarded the courage will not but, because the entrance under the Earth, and only from the station is reachable. From here, it comes in a square room that tapers in the middle to a glass opening. If you look up, you can see on many inscriptions, which stem from the countless expressions of by country according to the terrorist attack. To the already described strange opening times, which you should observe the extraordinary Memorial very well liked. The trail here is worthwhile.
