Thanks, Taller.

I´m posting more pix now. I don´t know if it´s better here or in the photocase part. If so, just tell me and I´ll change them to there.

Buildings at Paseo de Recoletos. These streets have good French Style buildings. It´s one of the places where tourists usually never go. These ones are near Plaza de Colón, so near a place where tourists go.









Castellana´s buildings of the 70´s and 80´s.















National Library:







Colón ´s statue:







The Spanish Parlament and buildings near it:










A theatre:



Plaza de Santa Ana, a place for tapas:







Barrio de los Jerónimos:









Huertas street:



National Instittute of Statistics, near Puerta de Europa:





Statues at Paseo del Prado. Temporary exhibition. It´s something very usual in Madrid these things:












The new Chamartín tube station by m3c, one of the biggest:





Lovers:



Streetlife:









Capoeira, the Brazilian community is quite big here:






The towers in the middle of the fog, taken from Urbanity.es, thanks to them:











Plaza Alonso Martínez, anotheer classical neighborhood where tourists usually don´t go:







A building by Churriguera, we call the style "churrigueresco":



Another new bar in the Chueca area:

Good pictures, Madridhere, I think Colón's statue has a lot more of details than the one in Barcelona, which is quite famous as well.

As for Chamartín station, it looks amazing!

Definitely there are enough that they should be posted in the Urban Showcase section . One or two scattered here in Cityscapes is ok, but if there is enough to start a thread, they really should be posted over there. Thanks!

So Taller, what I´ll do is the following thing:

When I post mainly pix of mine I´ll put them in the other file.

When i´ll post mainly pix of others I´ll put them here. I think I´ll have order like that. Thank you.

I´ll start with these wonderful pictures of Desde1970 (the first) and m3c of Museo Reina Sofía:















At this museum you can see these pix between others:







Atocha station by Jetairliner:



The four towers by Pérez:
