Take a photo of this building from different angles. It is impressive architecture orth to see. Big street next to the building is Gran Via, and the other one leads to the Puerta del Sol

It’s characteristic architecture and design make it worth some photos and a quick visit. There is nothing to tour inside as there is a bank that is operating at the ground level of the building. Still a pretty iconic building

The building is beautiful. Love the architecture and the dome on it. Everything was clean and it is right on the gran via. It is hard not to miss this.
