Architectural Madrid – Photo Essay

The capital of one of the largest empires in the world couldn’t have been more impressive! With its wonderful architecture, mind-blowing museums, spectacular views, superb green spaces and delicious food, Madrid quickly earned a place in my heart. By far, my favourite experience was strolling along the large boulevards and admire the capital’s diverse architecture, a “showcase of early 20th-century revival architecture, with architectural styles ranging from Vienna Secession style, Plateresque, Neo-Mudéjar, Art Deco, and others”.

I must admit to spending a whole lot of time taking pictures of the wonderful buildings on Gran Vía, Calle Mayor and around the city’s main squares (Puerta del Sol, Cibeles, Plaza Mayor or Plaza de España). Here’s a photo essay with some of the most beautiful buildings in Madrid, Spain.
