This impressive building occupies one side of the roundabout in Plaza Cibeles. I was intrigued by the beautiful facade, with some sculptures at its top. Classic architecture. I understand it is currently a cultural center to hold exhibitions and screenings. A good spot to take...More

My wife and I saw the two exhibitions, one about Garcilaso de la Vega, and the other about Saint Teresa. Both exhibitions were very good and interesting. We enjoyed the exhibitions very much and learned a lot.

A small little garden you can walk around with a museum on the USA Mexican wars and a cafe at the end. Lovely to sit and take in the atmosphere.

Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights
frame the neighbourhood of Barrio Salamanca. With
beautiful condominium buildings that make up most
blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and
quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large
shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle
Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will
reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of
