Palacio de Cibeles, Madrid

(3,600+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building
Palacio de Cibeles was once the headquarters of the Spanish postal service, but since 2007 the striking white building has served as Madrid City Hall. For a small charge, you can climb or take an elevator up to the observatory area for panoramic views of the city. Purchase your tickets at the information desk on the second floor. The rooftop bar is another good spot for taking in the view. Make sure to check if any exhibitions are running during your visit (there usually are).

  • Unfortunately the day I went was closed for visits, but say it was worth it, because the Palace from the outside it's very beautiful. Not to mention that it is only a few metres from Retiro Park which is another great place, so the trip was not lost. I hope that in a next opportunity is open to visitations.

  • Great views of the city from the top. The exhibitions on the different floors are also worth visiting. There is a good tourist shop on the first floor. There are also chill out areas with couches if you want to kill a little time in a relaxed atmosphere - with sockets to charge your phone etc.
  • Beautiful and huge building. You can go up the building and get a nice view of the city.
  • Main post office: the world's most beautiful town hall, the post office is currently writing in La. The neo-Baroque building is a dazzling white captures the hearts of the audience is. Climb up to the lookout overlooking the sunset sundown is also a wonderful memories. The lights turned on the fountain also shines beautifully, more than during the day.

  • Don't miss a visit to this magnificent palace. It is very nice, with its architecture and views. Especially at night, you can admire a beautiful Madrid.
