We had a wonderful time at CentroCentro, in the Palacio de Cibeles. The exhibition of the Abello collection is really good - there's a bit of everything from 16th century religious works, views of old Madrid right through the centuries up to Francis Bacon and the like, including most of the 19/20th century big hitters - Van Gogh, Chagall, Dali...

Juan Abello is a very prominent art collector in Spain and this exhibition of some of his art masterpieces was very good. All the paintings were in perfect condition. The artists that I enjoyed were Modigliani, Goya, Anglada Camarasa, Luis de Morales, Murillo and El Greco.

We came up to have a look at the great view and stopped for lunch. Its a nice location although some might balk at the prices (6 euros for a beer and 7.50 for cava) but you can't fault the location. There is plenty of shade and cooling spray and the staff are very friendly. Don't miss the brilliant art... More

The Masaveu Collection is one of the largest private art collections of Spain and is based in Asturias, containing more than 1,500 works of art. This exhibition showed some of the art that is outstanding. There was an El Greco that called El Expolio de Cristo and showed how they removed his clothes before the crucifixion. Another painting was a... More

The old post office building is beautiful and well worth a visit - there was some great contemporary art when I was there in October 2013. There is a €2 charge to get up to the viewing platform and it's well worth it if you like that sort of thing.

We thoroughly enjoyed the architecture, the views, the art, the well-presented history of the place, and the immensity and beauty of the structure. Please don't listen to nay-sayers, go see for yourself! I especially appreciated the community-building concepts presented therein. If only every city would review and embrace these.

We paid ?2 to get to the top level for view. There's nothing spectacular or breathtaking. There are 3 levels of free exhibition to compensate the disappointment if that helps.

When we planned our visit to Palacio de Comunicaciones, we thought it'd be a 5-minute walk by to admire the architecture. However, upon reaching the place, we discovered a real gem. First of all, it's huge! It literally dominated Plaza de Cibeles. The architecture is beautiful with some very tall arches inside, all in bright white. The places also houses... More

From what I could gather this splendid neo gothic, wedding cake of a building on the Plaza de La Cibiles was the main post office of Madrid. I believe it was surplus to requirements and in 2007 was restored to become the city hall. It has museum and public space for art and includes cafe's. There were lots of locals... More
