We propose to know something else Gran Vía from the urban, historical and architectural point of view since it was conceived more than 100 years ago until its last reform. We will start on the roof of the Circle of Fine Arts, work of Antonio Palacios. From there we will know together the urban development of Madrid, Gran Vía and surroundings, reviewing the history of other buildings of Palacios as the seat of the City Council or the Cervantes Institute. After going down the impressive staircase of the Circle and knowing the building inside, we will begin to walk the Gran Vía, stopping at the Loewe Foundation, Chicote Museum and the Telefónica Building, the first Madrid skyscraper, whose Foundation we will access together. We will continue the tour knowing the old Paris Warehouses, stopping at a rooftop in Callao with views of the third section of Gran Vía that we will travel to Pza. De España where we will go up to the last roof terrace to have a drink while I tell you about the project that will change this area.
