This is a magnificent building at the start of the Gran Via. Very imposing, well worth spending time admiring.

Possibly the prettiest downtown building I have seen in Spain. Take the time to find a place to sit, so you can gaze at this amazing architecture and appreciate the beauty.

When visiting Madrid, and especially the central area, you cannot miss this beautiful building (you will see it several times) and start to orientate from it :) It has a huge ROLEX sign on it

Walking down Gran Via you see this beautiful magnificent building, looks so majestic and kind of takes you back to a different era in time! The architecture is surreal and definitely something worth to admire and appreciate!

Head down along the Grand Via as you walk through the city and you won't miss it. Even before I knew what it was I was taking pictures.

Metropolis is probably one of the most recognized and most photographed buildings in Madrid. Located along the Gran Via, this beautiful white structure is both massive and architecturally impressive. It also looks pretty spectacular at night.

This is a beautiful building and catches your eye as you walk up Gran Via. The best time to see it is at night! It is bathed in lights and makes it even more majestic!

Without a doubt this is one of the prettiest and most beautiful buildings in the center of Madrid-and clearly the most photographed of all. It’s a building that can’t be missed while walking in the center of town

Chueca
Chueca is the hip, gay neighbourhood of Madrid where
many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where
the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and
people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main
thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is
Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables
