About Edificio Telefonica, Madrid

The Edificio Telefonica reflects Americana design conceptualised by Ignacio de Cardenas who instilled a touch of Baroque architecture into the design. The building was constructed in late 1920’s and at 89 meters in height, is one of the first sky-scrapers in Europe.

The building was used as an Observatory during the Spanish War and is the place from where Ernest Hemingway, John Dos Passos and Antoine de Saint-Exupéry sent their reports.

  • Great place to see exhibitions. Right now they have an amazing exhibition called "Eyes wide open! 100 years of Leica Photography" which is a must see for those interested in photography.

  • Useful if you need a SIM card for tourists. Staff could be a bit more helpful. Great decor.

  • Very good company for telecommunication And internet.

  • One of the best cultural destinations in Madrid, right on the corner of Fuencarral and Gran Vía, there are new exhibitions regularly and lots of other events -all for free. Also, find the only permanent Instagrammers exhibit in Madrid, as well as a nice little coffee shop ideal for a short break away from the hustle and bustle of Gran Vía.

  • Free exhibition. 3 different level. Always good to check what they have
