Faro de Moncloa Observation Deck

As the expression goes From Madrid to heaven, because once you’ve been to Madrid the only place that can top it is paradise itself. Enjoy the city from up high, taking in the wonderful views the Faro de Moncloa affords. Step into the panoramic lift that takes you up 92 metres to the observation deck which stands tall over the heart of Madrid’s Ciudad Universitaria. This former transmission tower was built by architect Salvador Pérez Arroyo in 1992, the year in which the city was named European Capital of Culture, and stands at 110 metres tall.

Going up to the Faro de Moncloa observation deck is quite an experience. Just let your gaze wander through the huge glass windows. A whole series of monuments stretches out in front of you: the Royal Palace, La Almudena Cathedral, the Telefónica building on Gran Vía, the Cuatro Torres Business Area and, in the background, the peaks of the Sierra de Guadarrama mountain range. On clear days you can see for a hundred kilometres.
