Edificio Metrópolis - Madrid Reviews
Edificio Metrópolis Jul 26, 2011
for me, Edificio Metrópolis is the TRUE symbol of madrid. it sticks out from all the buildings that surrounds it, it is not high or need a larger space to be recognized but once in the end of gran vía, this gorgeous building takes the attention of the passerby(s) specially if its lighted spectacularly at night.
the Edificio Metrópolis was constructed in beaux-arts style in the early 1900s. it was built in the intersection of gran vía and calle de alcalá facing in the distance of the palacio de comunicaciones and plaza de cibeles and beside the edificio grassy (rolex building).
madrid took a great effort in restoring Edificio Metrópolis because it had realized that it it IS one of madrid's landmarks and should be restored and maintained in its glory.
the rounded tower with the leaves is made of pure gold and the the wigned statue of the goddess victoria (niké in greek mythology) is the crowning glory of the edifice.
as of this date the Edificio Metrópolis is home to La Unión y el Fénix insurance company.
