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.

  • You'd not stop visiting him, because if you come to madrid it will be in your path within the Gran Via. Very easy to photograph. It is worth

  • This building, with a triangular base, located at the intersection of calle Alcala and Gran Via, it appears immediately at the sight for its very showy architecture, with its black Dome, topped by a winged Vittoria. The Interior is not open to visitors, so the best views are before sunset, when the Sun is low, highlighting its contours, with its Corinthian columns reminiscent of the style and sculptural groups representing various activities, agriculture, mining industry and more. Or the evening lit up ad hoc, becomes very scenic.

  • Very interesting feeling to see in reality these figures appear occasionally in films Almodovar, apparently in order to indicate the place of action. Business card Madrid, as rightly pointed out by other travelers.

  • 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
