This was a picturesque area of Madrid. I'd certainly seen photographs. Overall, I didn't spend a lot of time there. On the whole, the entire city has great public sculpture and picturesque squares.

This gorgeous and massive building, built in 1909, used to be the central post office, but is now an arts and culture center. You can pay to take the elevator to the rooftop for spectacular views.

This is one of the most impressive spaces in Madrid with the imposing Cultural Centre on the East side, the Central Bank opposite, an amazing fountain with lovely flower beds...Aside from the traffic it doesn't get much better than this.

Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights

quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large
shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle
Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will
reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of
