The pair of towers in the Spain square add beauty and class to the monument in the middle of the square. The towers have just celebrated their 90th birthday, and I'm certain their centennial would be a special event at the square.

Beautiful towers, built in the 1920's according to Google maps. Best viewed from the top of the Arenas shopping mall.
