Description

You might wonder why a city like Madrid, which couldn't be further from the sea, has a lighthouse. This huge, circular, glass-fronted deck on top of a 92 meter-high steel column is really just an elaborate viewing platform that offers 360-degree vistas of the city and its parks. The route to the top involves a dramatic ride up in an external glass elevator. To get a closer look at something in particular, shove some coins into the floor-mounted binoculars. You will find the tower next to the Museo de América. There are toilet facilities there. Parking spaces are not easy to find in this area.
