One of the most iconic buildings of Madrid for its unique, lofty architectural design. The palace lies at Cibeles Square (“Plaza De Cibeles” in Spanish), close to Madrid city center “Sol square”. It serves nowadays as the seat
of city council. By daytime, the building stands with pride, catching the eyes of all those who pass by that area, however, if you want to be amazed, just pass by this palace by night, that’s when the lighting on its facades is fascinating! Even for
me as a typical morning person, the palace was Charming by night You will find many people standing on the other side of Cibeles Square
to take postcard-like pictures of the palace with its charming facade lighting! Enjoy watching its design and light effects with the crowds, but watch your belongings carefully! I suddenly felt like my backpack is open & coins dropping! I checked it to
find out that a pick pocket had opened my backpack and stole 20 Euros Thank GOD he didn’t take the mobile phone too!
lesson learnt: Among crowds, put your backpack in front of you, not on your back
