The experience was unforgettable, the Lion King show spectacular. The Theater is well situated in the Gran Via, the sound is very good also the seats, and the services they offer before and after the show. I enjoyed it very much.

Fantastic show but dont sit too near the stage as it dilutes special effect and overall perception. A show you must see.

collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
