For a tourist I do not see it very accessible because it is on one of the sides of the University City can reach only by bus, car or on foot. I understand that a lover of contemporary architecture might like it but I find it very poorly designed in terms of interior layout. If you go on to make an appointment for an investigation you can check it out.
Este edificio inconfundible desde la M-30 fue Premio Nacional de Arquitectura, de los arquitectos Fernando Higueras (ver sus obras) y Antonio Miró.

From 1965 until its launch in 1985 it went through a number of strange situations, for example, it was said to be a major college for Chinese students. In the model shown you can see the original version, very different from the current one, and the Viaducto del Aire, the work of the engineer Eduardo Torroja, today hidden by the filling of Cantarranas stream. There are guided tours for groups, individual tours are included in group tours, depending on availability. The explanations of the guide are very didactic. A pity that, for reasons of confidentiality, photographs of workers and restoration works cannot be taken, and the visit is limited to the "outside of the interior" and to the terrace. Access is complicated by its location in a sack bottom next to the grounds of the Moncloa Complex. I recommend studying the chosen option in advance: on foot, by bus, by car or even by taxi.
very teresting building for those who have interest in modern architecture. Not free access, but you can say you go to the library
90 minutes of guided tour totally advisable where you are taught not only the building but part of the work that takes place there to take care of our national heritage. The library and its staff are wonderful, thank you Nani. Also thanks to our guide Cristina, it has been a pleasure.
