  • It is a huge building that extends both the Paseo del Prado and calle de Alcala to the finding in the corner. The Cibeles fountain is located in front of the same. The relevance of the property materialized since its inauguration by the Spanish monarch at the end of the 19TH century. Not I have seen it in full way, as it was in restoring the entire façade, this cover of scaffolding and a mesh. You can admire the round clock stone that tops "chamfer" and to the side of the Calle de Alcalá the coat of arms of the second Spanish Republic. Enjoy La Plaza Cibeles and the important surrounding buildings. LIFE... it's a TRIP!

  • Beautiful building in the Plaza de Cibeles, from the 14TH century. It houses part of the gold reserves. In case of alarm, it can flood cameras with the same water that feeds the fountain of Cibeles, coming from an underground stream.
