Atocha Station Memorial, Madrid Reviews
The inside (accessible from the station concourse) is open only 5 hours a day (those hours you are usually working). Edit: closed also 30 minutes before closing time. The outside part is inside a huge inaccessible roundabout.
Regrettably there isn’t an option for zero stars. All the monument ‘represents’ is the complete failure of secularism to answer why people matter. Why ‘remember’ when there is no hope without God? All death is a reminder that there is a God who has every right to judge you. So my advice? Go to church and pray for mercy.
It is near the train station and easy to find. A astonishing piece of art
My friend told me about the Atocha memorial monument and I walked around the station looking for it for several minutes. Before surrending, I finally found it thanks to the internet. For me, it's the ugliest monument I've seen, and not only in Madrid.
