Cuatro Torres Business Area, the skyline of Madrid

  • Cuatro Torres Business Area is the main business district of the capital of Spain, Madrid, and one of the most modern. There are four towers that give it its name and that are a very important part of the skyline of the city, and that gave the city a modern and futuristic touch. The tallest one is the Torre Caja Madrid, which is 250 metres tall; followed by the Torre de Cristal (Crystal Tower), with 249 m., the Torre PwC, with 235 and the Torre Espacio (Space Tower), with 230.
    Cuatro Torres Business Area may not be a touristic place, but it’s very recommendable to go see the sun go down behind the two big skyscrapers – a beautiful postcard view of the skyline of Madrid.
  • Madrid is a big city, and it is divided in different districts that are themselves divided in neighbourhoods. Cuatro Torres Business Area is located in the district of Fuencarral-El Pardo, the biggest of all the district but not the most populated, since it is full of green areas like the hill of El Pardo. Cuatro Torres Business Area is located in the neighbourhood of La Paz, which is a business area, so you won’t see many tourists during your stay there – your neighbours will mostly be locals! The neighbourhood of La Paz has a population of more than 37.000 people, 93% of which are Spanish.

In this street, you will find El Corte Inglés, a famous Spanish department store where you will be able to buy clothes, perfumes, jewellery, home décor items, gifts, entertainment products and many other things. And you will also find a shopping centre called Centro Comercial La Vaguada, located in the park with the same name.

    You can arrive to this commercial area by taking metro line 9 up to station Barrio del Piral, but it’s not too far to go by foot.

You can start your little tour in Plaza de Castilla, where you will be able to see the leaning KIO towers, popularly called the Gate of Europe.
