There are several interesting buildings at the small Plaza da Canalejas in central Madrid, including Edificio Meneses (Meneses Building) which has a rather eclectic facade that is enjoyable to view. The building was constructed in 1914-15 by Jose Maria Mendoza Ussia and Jose de Aragon Pradera and is quite attractive to see along with the adjacent, Casa Allende building with its similarly interesting architecture. Plaza da Canalejas is just a couple hundred meters or so from Puerta Del Sol. As such, it is convenient to pass by and see the interesting buildings here if you are a fan of architecture. Otherwise, just have a quick look if you find yourself in this plaza during your sightseeing in Central Madrid.
Dating from the beginning of the TWENTIETH century, it began to be built in 1914 on behalf of the widow of financier Meneses to the architects José de Aragón and José María Mendoza. It Stands Out for its high columns that occupy most of the building and its temple in the corner of the building. It Is located in Canalejas Square.
