The renovation of cibeles palace

In my opinion, it is the loveliest building in Madrid. It is worth going through all the floors and spots, it is a magnificent building.

Inside, on each floor, there are many surprises. If you start with floor 0, where there is a space dedicated to reading or relaxing, right next to desks with tactile screens to play and learn with information and pictures of "before" and "after" the renovation Palace. Further the old postal service stands (the Spanish Correos), exactly as it was at the time, which gives way to the glamor of other times.

We can go up the lift or the fabulous stairs to other floors (there are eight of them, including the tower and two lower floors). These stairs are decorated with spectacular glazed tile. On each floor, you discover something new, the glass floor, the very worked roofs, the painted glass and the huge exterior glass dome.

The renovation will take place in two phases, the first one is already finished. During the second phase there will be exhibitions, concerts and special events, what I guess will make the building very lively.

To go up to the terrace roof and have some unique views of Madrid, you have to get a ticket at the entrance, which is not an easy task because of the queue... I did not manage to get one: the number of tickets is limited and at 5.30 pm they were already sold out, but I was very jealous of the people who could go up...

It is a visit you cannot skip, I recommend it. I was truly amazed at the beauty of Cibeles Palace!

A new place to enjoy the views of madrid

With the renovation of the Palacio de Cibeles and its re-purposing as an exhibition center and town hall, we can now not only enjoy the spectacular interiors, but also the viewpoint on the 8th floor which offers an entirely new vision of the Spanish capital. The views are panoramic, but the best part is the view of the Plaza de Cibeles with Gran Via and the Sevilla area in the background.

You can also see the other classic terraces in the area like the Círculo de Bellas Artes which is conveniently located in the same direction as the sunset.

To visit, you need to purchase a ticket ahead of time. The tickets cost 2 euros and they let people enter every half hour. If you want to see the sunset, it's best to check the schedule and get your tickets ahead of time.

If you're a photographer, remember that you can't use tripods on the terrace.

My precious madrid

My Madrid, my precious Madrid. This building, once the headquarters of the Postal Service, is located in one of my favorite squares in the capital. The square is graced by the goddess Cibeles, whose watchful eyes capture all that happens in Madrid. And while we’re usually too busy rushing from one place to another, if we do stop one day and take a look, Cibeles will show us a magical part of Madrid’s history. After a lengthy restoration, Cibeles is finally open to the public and will be free until July 27th. The renovations look great and the best part is the access to the roof where you can enjoy priceless views of Madrid. It’s fantastic! They’ve also set aside a small part for relaxation complete with pillows, tables, and a bar. The area is decorated in bright, cheerful colors and is a great place to take a break or enjoy a book. In the galleries, you can enjoy the massive glass skylights and see poster-sized photographs documenting the renovations.

The most emblematic buildings

One of the most emblematic buildings in Madrid!! The Palace of Cibeles is one of Madrid’s landmark monuments and the current offices of the mayor of Madrid. It's located in Cibeles Square, which is visible from the Paseo del Prado which begins at the foot of the Palace. It was originally constructed by architects Antonio Palacios and Joaquin Ortendi to be the home of the Post and Telegraph Society of Spain. It’s commonly known as “Our Lady of Communications”, a name given to it by Leon Trotsky after he was impressed by the building’s grandeur during his visit to Madrid in the 1930’s. This building is also included in Spain’s Cultural Heritage list under the Monument category.

New cultural center and viewpoint

Centro Centro cultural center is located in Madrid’s iconic Palace of Cibeles, formerly the Palace of Telecommunications. Today, this exceptional and historical building is full of 21st century ideas and houses exhibits that represent the cutting-edge of various disciplines. Another exceptional attraction this building offers is the chance to enter the roof and enjoy the views. As soon as you enter, look at the available time slots and reserve a time to go up. To go up, there are stairs which are only 88 steps, which I’d recommend taking in order to enjoy the different views of Madrid, but there is also a lift for those who have difficulty with the stairs. It’s a shame they don’t let you stay on the roof for more than a few minutes though…but hey, it’s free!
