The City Hall of Madrid has the grandeur of Gothic architecture having been built in the early periods of the 20th century. It was primarily designed to house the main administrative postal office of Madrid, and therefore it also bears the name of the Communications Palace. Through a consistent service for over a century, the City Hall was later renovated to be the operational central office of the Madrid City Council. The City Hall exhibits a perfect architectural mixture of the Gothic building pattern along with the neoclassical modernised blend of design.

The exterior of the building is adorned with numerous flattened and rectangular pilasters combined with royal cartouches. The upper regions of the Hall bear excellent examples of delicate architect involved in the making of the long spires and pinnacles. The pinnacles are built of varying heights to highlight the sharpness of the exterior decorations of the City Hall. The central pinnacle is the tallest among all.

Palacio De Cibeles, Madrid Reviews - Write a Review

  • Emblematic place in Madrid and a symbol for Real Madrid fans (called merengues) The "meringues" celebrate cups and trophy's around the fountain (also used to soak inside it but nowadays it's forbidden) The fountain it's beautiful and it's placed at the intersection of 2 very representative avenues in the city centre.

  • Beautifull fountain. Centre of Madrid. A tourist atractive place.

  • Beautiful and historic building. Before Madrid's Hall was Postal Office Center. I recommended upstairs until the last floor and enjoy marvelous city views. Then downstairs until 6th floor to drink a cocktail Mandatory stop if you visit Madrid

  • Pretty building to pass by especially at night. Other than that - not much to do there. Would make it as a special point of sightseeing.

  • I just love this building. Can't walk past it without getting my đź“· out. They sometimes allow trips to the top where the views of Madrid are stunning. Worth a visit inside and out.
