Extract from Let Me Tell You About Madrid.

A couple of euros will get you on to the roof of this 1880 building, now an arts centre hosting exhibitions, lectures and concerts, with a library, shop and cafe too. Anyone familiar with the city will see it spread out before them in a new and intriguing light, for the visitor it’s a fabulous and exhilarating view.
