I like this picture when you drive from the north to the city centre. Madrid is an amazing city, full of modern architecture.

@sergio: Its the only one statue of the devil across the world. But never heard about the 666,66 metres above sea. Sounds weird, but it's possible according to the Retiro's neighborhood height average: 650m

I didn´t know that either. That´s posible and interesting

From Wikipedia:

"Cerca de la fuente, en el suelo, puede encontrarse el punto de localización de coordenadas del Instituto Cartográfico Nacional número 7664, que certifica que la estatua está a 666 metros sobre el nivel del mar medio en Alicante, medida oficial de altitud en España"

It confirms it. The National Cartography Institute certifies that the statue its at 666 metres above sea level.

Oh, interesting data abouth the Statue of "fallen angel" (=devil). Yes, it can be possible because of the altitude in Madrid.
thanks for the thread and the pics.

Madridhere, I would HATE to have to delete all your beautiful photos, so please go back and edit your entries to let us know either who took the photos, or at very minimum where you found them. Those are the rules of the Cityscapes forum. I await your prompt editing to save me deleting them. Thank you.

Thanks madridhere, in the future even if you took the photos, please tell us
that. Please consider making a thread of your beautiful photos for the Urban Showcase section. That is where we post photos we have taken ourselves. This section is for photos from the internet by others. Thanks!
