Create an itinerary including Palacio de Cibeles
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).

  • Very impressive building which is well worth a good look but the restaurant is very expensive for what it offers. Possibly best seen at night when there are lighting effects and much less traffic.
