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

I would strongly recommend this as a place to visit just to experience the amazing views of Madrid. It is also a beautiful building that has many different aspects to it, with many ornate sculptures & statues all around. There is a small charge (2 Euros) for a half hour visit to the observation deck and be sure to check... More

One of the things the Spanish seem to have done so successfully is blend classic and modern architecture, and this has got to be one of the best examples I've seen. We weren't sure exactly what the building housed from the outside, but it appears to be a cultural centre of some sort. There are restaurants, a café, a library,... More

The building itself is a work of art - looks like an enormous wedding cake right at the Cibeles Square. It is stunning and a must-see for any enthusiast of architecture. Access appears to be 24/7, there are exhibits, lounge areas, restaurants and bars on the rooftops, an observation deck (for 2EU), overlooking the City and the Cibeles Fountain -... More
