City-viewing

Hello, all! 🙂

San’s here and I recently discovered a very famous and touristic spot which I had never visited while living here: Circulo de Bellas Artes rooftop. I got the opportunity to visit this place on Saturday with my flatmates and I’m impressed. It was a summer afternoon with clear blue sky and a blazing sunlight.

Circulo de Bellas Artes is a historical building located in the longest road in Madrid, Calle Alcalá, which houses exhibitions in its halls. It also hosts summer schools focused in architecture, fine arts, and design. It has a beautiful café at its ground floor and has a theater behind it, which I don’t if it belongs to the Circulo de Bellas Artes or not.

Standing at an ascending terrain and composed of 6 levels, the rooftop of Circulo de Bellas Artes offers the views of Madrid’s skyline. It offers a clear view of Palacio de Cibeles (one of the most emblematic buildings in Madrid), Puerta de Alcalá, and the Metropolis building. While being there, I realized that Madrid is a small city, because the whole city could be viewed from this rooftop.

There's a bar at the rooftop, which of course is overpriced, but worth the views.

For this outing, I wore a black miniskirt and a white t-shirt that are very comfortable to walk in the heat of summer, because it allows the wind to touch your skin. The final touch was a tree-and-bird necklace made of wood that I bought 3 years ago, but is still one of my favorite accessories to wear 😀
