A well-known, highly photographed, and greatly admired building by practically each and every tourist that visits Madrid, as well as a silhouette recognized by those who have never stepped foot in Madrid. The Metropolis’s 45 meters in height located at the foot of Madrid’s busy Gran Via doesn’t go unnoticed. The insurance company Metropolis has occupied the building since 1972 and has been in charge of restoring its façade and taking care of this iconic work of art ever since.
Some time ago, I posted several night photos of the building, but today strolling down Gran Via, I realized that its dome wasn’t the only thing worth seeing, rather that there are other details of the building that usually fall under the radar that deserve a closer look. For example, the delicately-made wrought-iron entrance doors and the sculptures standing on both sides of the entrance are sights not to miss. I recommend that you take time to look at the entire building, instead of just paying attention to its famous dome. I’ll put a few pictures up so you can judge for yourself. I wasn’t able to photograph the entire building, though :).
