A pic like the first one but with the new towers would be quite nice appreciated.

The players look like ants, don´t they?


















I think that the hotel will be opened tomorrow. I hope you enjoy them.

Ahora mismo no sé qué es esto que hay en Plaza de Castilla, en la salida hacia las torres.

Does anyone know anything about the panoramic lifts that Torre Caja Madrid was supposed to have? I can't spot them.

Great pictures! Of course the more buildings there are, the better the area will look...I agree, but for a European city this is really a hit.
Very few capitals in Europe have four skyscrapers of 250 meters high.
