  • Plaza de Castilla is a nice square with some very interesting buildings. The architecture is quite unusual. The area is quite modern and there are several good shops around.  more »
  • Piazza (in fact it is a roundabout) that meets in the almost terminal section of the paseo de la Castellana (stop metro "Plaza de Castilla"); from here, without resuming the metro, you can walk to the 4 towers of the business area. The architectural value of the square is given by the cumbersome presence of the 2 Kio towers (which together make the so-called "Puerta de Europa"), sloping skyscrapers placed facing each other on either side of the paseo de la Castellana. At the center of the roundabout is the 92-metre-high obelisco de la Caja, built in 2009 by Calatrava (a long golden rod of somewhat dubious aesthetic taste and which make the obelisks that egyptians made 3 millennia ago regret). Finally on one side of the square, on the opposite side of the KIO towers, there is the large monument to Jose Calvo Sotelo, inaugurated in 1960, a monument that can be accessed and from which to have a beautiful view of the "puerta de Europa" and the paseo of Castellana.
