American style

Plaza de Callao or Callao Square is one of the most central and busiest squares in the entire city of Madrid since it is crossed by Gran Vía. Personally, it is one of my favorite squares in the capital, since the buildings have a great personality and are influenced by American architecture, more precisely Chicago and New York. A good example is the Cinema Building Callao, of 1929, copying the style of the American school of Chicago.

One of my favorite buildings in Madrid is on this square, the Capitol building, better known as the "Schweppes Logo" building, since it has on its facade a huge neon with the drink brand, which also appears in some Spanish movies scenes like the famous "El Día de la Bestia". The building was created by the architect Luis Martínez-Felduchi and Vicente Eced. There is also the front facade of la FNAC, chain of huge stores specialized in technology, movies, music and books.

One of the classics of the city

"Callao", as the Madrileños call it, is one of the classic places in the city. Located right in the middle of Gran Vía, very close to Sol, it is one of the places where people usually meet before having drinks, going to the cinema, the theater, shopping, etc.. The square itself does not have much charm. Actually, you can almost say it is not a square. But the place is worth it.

Recognizable and commercial spot

Sol might be the heart of Madrid, but a little North, right in Gran Vía, you have the arteries of the city. Memorable for the great number of passers-by all year long, Callao Square is also one of the most recognizable and commercial spots of all in Madrid.

Cuants times have we been through Callao popularly known as the square and we have not stopped to look at the three emblematic buildings containing. Begin by saying that in 1924 he inaugurated the second of the sections of the Gran Via which began on La Red de San Luis and ended at the square. This stretch was opened in the name of Pi. As a curiosity I have to say that in 1939 opened an office in the square of bread, cakes and cold cuts from a man named Antonio Knee Salamanca, whose places today as the specialty sandwiches are espacidos throughout Madrid. At number 4 of the square is the most significant building in the same THE PALACE OF THE PRESS whose foundation stone was laid by Alfonso XIII on July 11, 1925. Conceived as a multifucional building was constructed between 1925 and 1929 under the architect Pedro Muguruza design for Asciación of the Madrid Press. Was considered the highest in the Gran Via to the building of Telefónica. On the corner of Gran Vía we find the CAPITOL BUILDING BUILDING CARRIÓN or with its spectacular neon Schweppes. Built between 1931 1933 in deco style and designed by the architect Luis Martinez and Vicente Eced Feduchi Eced, highlighted by advances tenológicos for that time, especially its central cooling system that occupied an entire floor and was the pile of Madrid. In 1933 he received the Prize of the City of Madrid and second-class medal in 1934 at the National Exhibition of Fine Arts. Finally I turn to edficio Callao Cinema, built under design Luis Gutierez Soto, author of four other theaters in Madrid, between 1926 and 1927. Highlights are the impressive façade billboards right.

Cuantas veces hemos pasado por Callao como se conoce popularmente a esta plaza y no nos hemos parado a mirar los tres emblemáticos edificios que contiene.

Comenzaré diciendo que en 1924 se inaguró el segundo de los tramos de la Gran Vía que empezaba el La Red de San Luis y terminaba en esta plaza. Este tramo se inaguró con el nombre de Pi y Margall.

Como dato curioso he de decir que en 1939 se abrió en la plaza un despacho de pan, pasteles y fiambres por un hombre procedente de Salamanca llamado Antonio Rodilla, cuyos establecimientos en la actualidad y como especialidad los sandwichs se encuentran espacidos por todo Madrid.

En el número 4 de la plaza se encuentra el edifició más significativo de la misma EL PALACIO DE LA PRENSA cuya primera piedra fué colocada por Alfonso XIII el 11 de julio de 1925.

Concebido como un edificio multifucional fué construido entre 1925 y 1929 bajo diseño el arquitecto Pedro Muguruza para la Asciación de la Prensa de Madrid. Fué considerado como el más alto de la Gran Vía hasta la construcción del edificio de la Telefónica.

Haciendo esquina con la Gran Vía nos encontramos con el EDIFICIO CARRIÓN o EDIFICIO CAPITOL con su espectacular anuncio luminoso de SCHWEPPES. Construido entre 1931 1933 en estilo déco y proyectado por los arquitecto Luis Martinez Feduchi y Vicente Eced Eced, destacó por los adelantos tenológicos para aquella época, sobre todo su sistema de refrigeración centralizado que ocupaba toda una planta y fué el rimero de Madrid. En 1933 recibió el Premio del Ayuntamiento de Madrid y Medalla de Segunda Clase en 1934 durante la Exposición Nacional de Bellas Artes.

Por último me referiré al edficio del CINE CALLAO, construido bajo diseño de Luis Gutierez Soto, artífice de otros cuatro cines en Madrid, entre los años 1926 y 1927. Lo más destacado son sus impresionantes carteleras en su fachada derecha.

Sparkling!

For some time, the area of ​​Callao is trying to convert to what is already the motto that stands already on neon signs: Callao City Lights. In my opinion, this attempt to make this place a kind of Times Square threatens to disfigure the edges of this city, but I must admit that the evening stroll through the bright lights of cinema and palaces has its own charm. During the Christmas season the effect increases considerably, thanks to decorations that adorn the Gran Via and minipista rink that occupies the square.

Sfavillante!

Da qualche tempo la zona di Callao sta cercando di convertirsi in quello che è già il motto che campeggia già sui cartelli al neon: Callao City Lights. A mio avviso questo tentativo di far di questa piazza una specie di Times Square rischia di sfigurare i contorni di questa città, ma devo ammettere che di sera passeggiare tra le luci sfavillanti di cinema e palazzi ha il suo fascino.

Nel periodo natalizio l'effetto aumenta considerevolmente, grazie alle decorazioni che ornano la Gran Via e alla minipista di pattinaggio che occupa la piazza.

Callao - praa american

Callao square is a lot of fun, inspired by the American courts. That's where you can find the building with the advertising "schweppes", where a huge fnac, the fast-food restaurants, the cinema, where he also sees some demonstrations, and where very active nightlife. It's nice to walk there from when 19h/20h Madrilenos come out of their homes to wander!

Callao - praça americana

Callao é uma praça muito divertida, inspirada nas praças americanas. É lá que se pode encontrar o edificio com a publicidade "schweppes", onde se encontra uma enorme fnac, os restaurantes de fast-food, o cinema, onde se vê também algumas manifestações, e onde se encontra grande actividade nocturna. É bom passear por lá a partir das 19h/20h quando os madrilenos saiem das suas casas para passear!

Another typical but essential views of Madrid, next to the Academy of Fine Arts. Not only to take pictures, it is also a good place to get a coffee and enjoy the view of one of the most famous and photographed streets of Madrid. This is the best up to the 9th floor of the Corte Ingles, the Gourmet Experience. I recommend wearing polarizing filter to reduce glare when taking pictures.

Otra de las vistas típicas pero imprescindibles de Madrid, junto a las del Círculo de Bellas Artes. No solo para hacer fotos, también es un buen sitio para quedar a tomar un café y disfrutar de las vistas a una de las calles más conocidas y fotografiadas de Madrid. Para ello lo mejor es subir a la 9ª planta del Corte Inglés, al Gourmet Experience. Recomiendo llevar filtro polarizador para evitar reflejos al hacer las fotos.

A walk around callao

Wonderful building that holds center stage in this square of Madrid, now pedestrianized. On a blue sky day as intense as it is a luxury to contemplate this building. At night, illuminated sign with his well-known, has nothing to envy to other cities overseas.

Un paseo por callao

Maravilloso edificio que ostenta gran protagonista en esta plaza de Madrid, ahora peatonal.
En un día de cielo tan azul intenso como éste, es un lujo contemplar este edificio.
Por la noche, con su archiconocido cartel iluminado, nada tiene que envidiar a otras ciudades allende los mares.
