In the beggining a lot of people bashed Repsol/Caja Madrid Tower. I said back them "I'm sure once it is almost built, people will retract and change what they said". And actually it is happening, since a lot of people now say "oh, it's nice"

From another angle of the park:







Now just the two towers:

I saw the movie deception . Very good propaganda for Madrid . My mate also lent me an AC/DC dvd filmed in Las Ventas bullring . It's called AC/DC No Bull .
Many of Madrids projects are being published in Architectural magazines and books . More and more people are starting to learn it is Iberias greatest city . If this operacion Chamartin went ahead the city could push all the way and compete to be Europes greatest city . Madrid is kicking arse .

Deception is not yet available in Spain. In Europe American films always take a while to arrive, some months usually. Anyway Madrid´s number of tourists is growing a lot year by year, much more than in the rest of Spain. The countries that come more each year now are USA, Italy and UK. It would be interesting to find the figures. As there is no beach here, the tourists come specially for business, museums, night life and monuments.

Movies, dvds and all the media is what Madrid needs now for a definitive push (apart from the Olimpic Games in 2016, of course, haha).

Does somebody have the figures of the tourrists here please?

Thanks for the pictures, they are lovely.

All towers rock. I would've prefer them to be more varied in height though. It's like having four empire state buildings right beside each other. Not very interesting right?
