Palacio de Cibeles, Madrid

4.5
#18 of 1,321 in Things to do in Madrid
Palacio de Cibeles was once the headquarters of the Spanish postal service, but since 2007 the striking white building has served as Madrid City Hall. For a small charge, you can climb or take an elevator up to the observatory area for panoramic views of the city. Purchase your tickets at the information desk on the second floor. The rooftop bar is another good spot for taking in the view. Make sure to check if any exhibitions are running during your visit (there usually are).

  • Apart from the beautiful Palace, very entertaining, interesting and original samples. It is worth 1000%

  • as there is more room to see some other sights, we arrived here by chance. Nice surprise. The regret was not being able to go to the top floor to enjoy the view, but despite this, the temporary exhibition, and the architecture of the site won us all over.

  • It is very beautiful and usable to make exhibitions of this year which was organized Artmadrid and does not disappoint. The only downside is that as always, they organize evil queues and end up putting two rows with which who come back come before you, but in the end, is the only thing that I think could be better.
