Metrópolis S A, Madrid

(4.5/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
Admire the lavish rounded tower of Metrópolis S A, 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 Metrópolis S A can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • This place need not cost a packet for you. It is as stunning from the outside as it is on the inside and on one of the main routes through the city will keep you occupied as you watch the world go by....  more »
  • Not is if you can visit, but is really very impressive architecture and sculpture in the dome

  • a fine example of Art Nouveau architecture, but far from unique! the full calle gran via has plenty of fine examples of Art Nouveau style buildings [or art nouveau, modernistas, REB, etc] (actually I don't know of a similar concentration elsewhere! in Milan, we pointed a building just to name a square "of Liberty"!). Opposite qst Palace (and not only) there are also some impressive buildings in the classical style, however well designed and a little less cold typical high rises of qst style that species in the 800 has filled many city of high rises much impressive qnt "cool and dry" as I call them. The effect is such that make a visit to Madrid x qlnq majoring in architecture! Anyway-Madrid presents Liberty buildings variously scattered, and it is not rare to come across a building Liberty walking everywhere around town!

  • 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)
  • Beautiful building
  • Me encanta
