The Plaza de Castilla (Castile Square) is one of the busiest spots in Madrid – not for the parties, but for pure craziness.
There is an open-air bus transfer station, the Kio Towers, the Four Towers, the Paseo de la Castellana which converges in this zone, and a gigantic round-about through which cars, buses and crowds of people join together in the capital of Spain.
If you are one of those daring adventurers to whom the word dangerous is exciting, the Plaza de Castilla is without a doubt a must-see in Madrid. It is the spot in Madrid with the most skyscrapers and it is presided over by the two amazing Kio Towers. These two huge hulks of concrete stand out by their size and by the shadows they cast during the sweltering summer afternoons.
You can also revel in a little peaceful refuge in the park that is on one of the corners of the plaza. In addition, you can enjoy a beer in one of the many dives around the round-about. The only thing considered to be mission impossible is parking.
We recommend that you leave your adventuring face behind and utilize Parclick, where you can choose between many different options of parking decks close to Plaza de Castilla, in which you can leave our car for as long as you like.
One of the aspects of Plaza de Castilla that will grab your attention is the Obelisk that dominates the round-about. This enormous mast that elevates into the sky was a donation by Caja Madrid to the city and was designed by Calatrava. At the beginning, the building had to move and do you know how long it took for them to complete the installation? Well, we will tell you… three months. For almost 100 days, the shouting lasted and how would you go about fixing the tower? Be sure to enjoy it now because at least it has not fallen yet.
Don´t forget to visit the Calvo Sotelo Monument, which will allow you to rest from the hustle and bustle of this zone. And remember that to enjoy your adventure without worrying and with the knowledge that your care is parked in a safe place, use Parclick for an endless amount of opportunities to park in a monitored parking deck in Plaza de Castilla.
