View of the city
Jun 2021 • Solo
Interesting activity if you have already checked Madrid's museums and parks like me. The building is located near the metro station Moncloa, entrance cost 4 euro. I was basically alone there so I could enjoy the view from multiple perspectives. However you cannot take very good photos due to the protection grid, you cannot get close to the glass to put your lense there so I had to use a little bit of zoom so the windows were not visible on my pictures. I found it good that there were panels explaining about the different buildings.

Great view of Madrid

This is an observation deck. The view from here was great as you can see the whole city of Madrid.

The price of the ticket was 3 Euro, which was very reasonable as compared to other towers around the world.

Great views!

Costing just €3, a trip up in the glass elevator to the top of this tower is a must do in Madrid. Adjacent to the American museum and Moncloa Station its easy to reach.
I wasn't on the viewing deck for more that 10 minutes but it was long enough to get views of the city and surrounding area. Definitely worth a visit.

Oh I highly recommend, there is no queue thank god maybe because this place is not very well known by every tourist, costs only 3 euros and you enjoy the lift in the elevator and the astonishing view of all madrid from above.

Winter sun with a great view.

Took the metro to the Faro. Cheap entrance 3 euros, glass lift to the viewing platform and the view over the city and towards the mountains was superb. The girl at the information desk was knowledgeable and very helpful. Take a pair of binos to more easily pick out the landmarks of Madrid.The museum of the Americas is right beside the Faro and means that you can tick 2 places of interest of you Madrid list in one trip.

Awesome panoramica

We walked it to the Faro de Moncloa from the city centre (you can go by metro)and boy was it worth it! The view is spectacular albeit it is through a glass partition. You can see the whole city and the surrounding hills and you see how very big the city is. It is also gives you a fantastic view of the Victory Arch. We enjoyed it very much.

Bargain visit

3 euros is an absolute bargain for one of the better views over Madrid. Helpful guidance and guides to show you where to find certain buildings and on a clear day views well into the distance. A bit out of the way but easily reached via metro.

Stunning views

Would highly recommend a visit here for the views of the city. Easy to get to by bus and a short walk. Entry cost €3, worth every cent! Wasnt busy while we were there, late morning. You go up in a glass lift - no good if you don't like heights! Views were stunning, with pictures showing what you were looking at. Highly recommended

Worth the visit

Definitely worth it. Quite a bit out of the city but next to a metro station. Only €3 and was practically empty when we went. Great views

Not a decent viewing platform
Aug 2019
Advertised as a 92 metre high tower with a panoramic view of the city!
Firstly it is only part of the city because it is the far side of the hill from Gran Via so you get a view of the university and a few other places.

However, after riding up the elevator that takes you to the observation deck you will notice:
1) You cannot get close to the windows.
2) The windows are dirty so you get an obscured view.
3) The outdoor part is locked off.

Maybe it only costs 3 Euros but it was a disappointing experience as we expected a little more.
