C.C. Príncipe Pío
Estación Príncipe Pío - Paseo de la Florida 2
Zone: Príncipe Pío - Casa de Campo
www: Príncipe Pío shopping mall
This shopping complex is found within the representative building of Estación del Norte (Railway Station). The project involved rehabilitating and enlarging the old railway station so that within the same space both public transport and a multifunctional centre could be combined. The old historic building has been given an avant-garde and functional style where classical and art deco elements combine. In terms of the building, the cantilivered roof dating from 1881 and the 3.20 metre diameter clock are outstanding. If to all that a wonderful situation right in the centre of the city - 100 metres away from the Royal Palace and La Almudena Cathedral – is added, we find one of the best ones.
