  • This 90 m high tower allows you to enjoy Madrid from above in all its glory at 180°. The only advice not to go to sunset because you have the light versus. Family Bernardini

  • Beautiful views of Madrid can be seen but with crystals can not make good pictures. In addition the heating had to stop and was very hot in the month of December.

  • After several attempts to climb to the lighthouse of Moncloa, along its history, today have could enjoy of them excellent views of Madrid from the heights. Sometimes by bad weather, other works in its structure and others security concerns had not been able to upload. It is worth paying what it costs. In addition, as the elevator, we have broken we had to lower the 515 steps that there are to the base. That Yes, without any problems in terms of safety and with the sensational attention of staff. My advice: best in spring or summer because these dates of autumn light does not allow to clearly see everything there is to do.

  • I really loved it. Just 3€ nice views it was quiet. Lovely pictures for sightseeing lovers
  • I used to come to the Faro on trips with friends and was disappointed when it closed several years ago, and equally delighted when I heard it had re-opened. The entrance ticket was 3€ and you can spend as long as you want up there. You can no longer walk the 360 degrees (nor could you for a while previously) but you can still view the area away from the city. As for the city views, they are pretty spectacular and the best way to view Madrid from above. It's not the easiest place to get to (Moncloa metro probably the best way) but worth it.
  • Replica of Puerta de Alcala. Historical Building intersection.
  • Best views of Madrid for only €3! Not too crowded!
  • Nice place to take good pictures
