  • Plaza de Colón is a beautiful, vast and decorated square by its situation at the beginning of the Salamanca district. It reminds us of the discovery of the Americas by Cristobal Colón. A place to stroll and enjoy their surroundings.

  • Out of the Prado we move by wide avenues, in a neighborhood very airy and richly built Executive Plaza Colon. The central aisle of Paseo de Recoletos is very nice, dotted with many bistros restaurants, leading you to the statue of Colon and Fernan Gomez cultural center. It must linger in the corner it's nice!
