Metropolis, Madrid

(1,300+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
Admire the lavish rounded tower of Metropolis, which is covered with 30,000 leaves of 24 carat gold. This city landmark, constructed in 1911, stands along one of Madrid’s busiest streets. Study its ornate French Beaux-Arts style architecture and look for the four statues that sit atop the columns. The statues represent mining, agriculture, industry, and commerce. To enjoy the view of the building a little longer, buy a drink and sit outside at one of the many nearby bars. Using our international travel planner, Madrid attractions like Metropolis can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Huge Building! Epic and unique. If you travel to Madrid, you must take a walk in all this area.
  • Open area and impressive building and I do not know what is this building.
  • Meh, from the pictures I've seen it's a nice building, pretty from the outside, but I couldn't see it since it was covered in a huge 'Batman v Superman' billboard (well, it's Metropolis after all)
