  • beautiful and majestic sculpture group must be seen from different angles and I suggest to go with a tour guide to fully understand its meaning

  • And an excellent very spacious city point which allows to obtain a very good panoramic view of the whole area

  • I would have liked to have seen the source more closely, but it is basically a roundabout. One day that area of Madrid is closed to pedestrians. For now, the best way to view the font is watching from the Windows of the Gallery CentroCentro.
