    The Circulo de Bellas Artes was founded in 1880 by a small group of artists. This building for the headquarters of the Circulo was completed in 1926 by the architect Antonio Palacios who is known for such emblematic buildings as the Palacio de Cibeles, the Bank of Spain, and the Palacio de Maudes.

    The rooftop of the Circulo de Bellas Artes has spectacular views of Madrid, with some buildings of Gran Via like the Metropolis being very close. You can find a bar and restaurant here. For the lift, you have to buy a ticket.

    We were a little bit confused because the ticket says that it is a combi ticket for the lift and the exhibition but we couldn't get into the exhibition with this ticket. However, the ticket was just 5 euros. For us, the views covered that price.

    Book your tour in advance. I wish I would have planned better. It's a gorgeous building. Wish I had signed up for an official tour.

    This is a fantastic convention center, where we attended two events - Desafio Dali (pavilion 5.1 - an interactive journey through Dali's life) and El Mago Yunke (pavilion 1 - a fantastic magic show).
    The convention center is easily accessible by Metro (Feria de Madrid station).

    During our short Madrid visit, we were looking for a place to have a coffee and have some rest. The cafe fulfilled our needs in that sense. Some details:
    Atmosphere: Quite nice, cosy
    Menu: Simple foods (sandwich, tortilla, etc.) and drinks
    Prices: Prices were average. We paid for a tortilla 2,5€ and for cappuccino something around 2€
    Staff: They were kind but cannot speak English

    All in all, nice cafe. If you are around, you can stop by.

    Exploring around the eclectic Barrio De Lavapies I passed Biblioteca Escuelas Pias and what a great find.
    Initially I though this was a church ,I was half correct as this was once an ancient place of worship but was burned down during the bitter Spanish Civil War, converted into the former Library Of San Fernando Pias School and then in its present guise as Biblioteca Escuelas Pias ,a great looking building, interior is superb ,exposed brickwork, beautiful lighting and well laid out ,its easily the most beautiful and unique of Library's in Madrid and well worth checking out if you're in the Lavapies neighbouring and easy to locate along Calle Del Sombrerete.

    I passed by this building when exploring Retiro Park. I understand it is a cultural centre to host exhibitions, theatre and concerts. It was closed when I was there. Nice to take a photo of its exterior.
