Yes, you're right, Bogdan Alexandru, they can either be called Torres Kio or Torres Puerta de Europa

What incredible photos . One of my fav parts of Madrid is the walk from Puerta del Sol thru C/ Alcala up to Cibeles . With a stop on the corner to view La Gran Via . This must be one the the most spectacular stretches of any street anywhere in the world .

Also around palacio Real

And hows the Plaza mayor ? Absolutely awesome .

Lavapies for the incredible variety of restaurants , tapas etc......

Parque del Retiro must vie to be the most beautiful park in Europe .

The museums .

Un-equalled nightlife .

Some of Europes most awesome and historical cities surrounding Madrid . I.e Avila , Segovia , Toledo , Escorial etc.... And Especially Salamanca . Regarded by many to be the most beautiful sandstone buildings city in the world .

Footballs greatest club . Atletico oops i mean Real Madrid

Just hate those damn commie blocks

I totally agree, some of my favourite walks are:

· Puerta del Sol to Banco de España (or Cibeles)
· Plaza de España, all the way through Gran Vía, to Banco de España (or Cibeles)
