Visit one of the historical centers of Madrid with us as we see Palacio de Cibeles. Like the eighteenth century fountain in front of it, the palace is an emblematic monument of the city. This magnificent structure sits waiting for you to explore it.
Originally, this building was used for communication. It was the largest post office in the world, making it larger than Chicago’s post office. However, in 2007, Palacio de Cibeles was given a new function. Now, it is the seat of the Madrid City Council. With the change in function, the building underwent some changes. One alteration was that the original mail sorting office now serves as the council chamber.
Since the building used to be the largest post office in the world, it has a lot of space to fill. There are many attractions inside that you may not have expected from an old post office.
