The trip starts from Gran Via that leads to Plaza de Cibeles, right in front of the 18th century Fuente de Cibeles. Nerve center of the Spanish capital, the square is famous for its gorgeous Palacio de Comunicaciones, designed in the early 20th century as a “Total Work of Art” in which every minimum detail, from the decorations to the counters of the Sala de operaciones or the ventilation system, forms a unitary artistic complex serving its function, just like what happens with the components of the Huracán.
Other buildings to visit include the historic Prado Museum, one of the world’s most important museums that contains the histories of European art of the last five centuries – from Caravaggio to Goya, from Raphael to Velasquez, and many others. Acting as its counterpart is the Queen Sofia National Museum Art Center, which preserves the most important works of art from the 20th century to today, first and foremost Guernica by Picasso.
Then it is impossible to leave the city without having seen Plaza Mayor and Puerta del Sol, and without stopping to contemplate one of the marvelous gardens found in the Buen Retiro Park.
