The Metropolis building as seen better days, and they haven't been recent. From decades of being ingulfed in carbon monoxide and who knows what other chemicals from the constant line of cars that pass the boulevard directly in front of it. What used to be white is now a dirty, off color beige. Not anything that insists on a second look. Once glance is really all that is needed. It's obvious that at one point in time, it really was a beautiful building, but nowhere does it reflect its prior glory as a landmark in the city. It really needs a serious face lift.

It looks like the architects designing buildings in this area were trying to outdo each other with their roofing areas. The Metropolis is such a stand out design that it dominates the skyline but take the time to look around at the other buildings in the area.

Came across this on a long walk (15km) in Madrid. Was very impressed by the architecture of the area. Plenty of cafe's around to quench thirst etc.

The area is full of chaos with endless road constructions going on. It is not a nice area for walking around or breathing..
