The square has a fountain with a pond, and seasonally landscaped and wooded areas. On the side of the square two emblematic buildings of the city are build: Torre Madrid and Edificio España, which constitute one of the most interesting architectural areas of the capital.
Torre Madrid is one of the tallest buildings in Madrid. It is 465 feet high and was built in 1957 by the brothers Julián and José María Otamendi Machimbarrena. They had been hired by the Compañía Inmobiliaria Metropolitana, for whom they had already built the Edificio España.
Edificio España is one of Madrid’s most representative skyscrapers. The Otamendi brothers built it in 1953 in Neo-Baroque style. It has a staggered silhouette of four heights, and enjoys considerable protection from the City Council itself. Standing at 117 metres tall and with 25 floors, it is the eighth tallest building of the Spanish capital, including the Cuatro Torres Business Area skyscrapers.
