Torre Picasso, views from the tower

Torre Picasso
Torre Picasso soars an impressive 515 ft (157m) into the Madrid sky. Once the tallest skyscraper in the Madrid skyline, it now (as of 2007) plays 5th fiddle to the 800 ft+ four towers in the Cuatro Torres Business Area (CTBA).

Taking photos from this tower is actually prohibited but since it thrills the little outlaw in me, I took photos anyway.

Views from the 21st:
From Torre Picasso
The sierra

2 of the CTBA towers and the slanted Caja Madrid twin towers.

Views from the 33rd:
From Torre Picasso
Santiago Bernabéu, where Real Madrid kicks balls.
From Torre Picasso
Paseo de la Castellana and BBVA with Torre España off in far in the distant background.
From Torre Picasso
Wide view of the Madrid skyline with the pointy Torrespaña, also popularly known as “piruli” which means a lollipop in Spanish.

I hope you enjoyed the view. Have a great a weekend everyone!
