Cibeles Square, Madrid: 52 reviews and 84 photos

  Palacio de las Comunicaciones
by agarcia

Ok, Cibeles is not very impressive as a monument, but I will suggest you to start any interesting tour around Madrid there. It's located in the intersection of Gran Via with Paseo de Recoletos, that is, near all the biggest city museums (Prado, Thyssen, Reina Sofia).

In the same square you'll find the much more impressive "Palacio de las Comunicaciones " (Telecommunications Palace), which is not a church, as you may think by its shape, but instead the central offices for the Spanish Postal Service. In fact, when the building was finished in the beginning of the past century, it was given the nickname of "Church of the Telecommunications Virgin". ;-)

Address: Where Alcala street crosses Paseo del Prado
Directions: It's the beginning of the Alcala Street
