Edificio Grassy is an impressive building at the eastern end of Gran Via. Often overshadowed by the neighboring Edificio Metropolis, it is one among many beautiful sites along Madrid's busiest street. Unfortunately it is not open to the public.

A fun thing to do when walking in the Gran Via area of Madrid is to gaze at the buildings some of them are real standouts. Edificio Grassy has an almost gateau like topping. It is noticeable with the Rolex crown sign.

The Edificio Grassy is found at one end of the very busy Gran Via Street. Its architecture calls attention to it because it is so very different from other buildings on that street. It is quite beautiful.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of

pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
