THE PALACE THAT MORPHED (PAINFULLY, NOT WITHOUT BULLET WOUNDS) FROM “CATHEDRAL” TO THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF MONET »
Madrid is a historic and historical capital city prodigiously dotted with peerless landmarks. One of these is the Palacio de Comunicaciones.which went from a bustling hub of Spain's sprawling postal network to a white elephant that nobody knew what to do with. Eventually, it became the seat of the government of the nation's capital and a cultural center too that currently exhibits Monet's impressionist masterpieces. Almost any event, great or small, that has something to do with life in contemporary Madrid happens at CentroCentro: concerts, movies, conferences, guided tourist tours, company presentations, art exhibitions public and private ceremonies. . .
FREE RIDE on EMT buses throughout the city of Madrid during the NATO Summit from the 28th to the 30th of June. The measure is in line with the plan of the Madrid City Council to momentarily wean users from private vehicles that will not only snarl up traffic but will also make the enforcement of security measures for the Summit all the more complicated. Passengers may use their transport pass to take the bus without the ride being charged against the pass. Or, if the passenger has no transport pass, the bus driver will issue a free ticket.
