Cibeles Palace, formerly Palacio de Telecomunicaciones and now home to Madrid City Council, boasts a huge cultural venue, CentroCentro, the Glass Gallery, spread over more than 2,400 square metres, plus other rooms where businesses can hold events and celebrations. These areas are very versatile and can be used for conventions, award ceremonies, press conferences, cocktail receptions and dinners.
The building is remarkable for its location right in the heart of Madrid, marking the start of the city's cultural hub in Plaza de Cibeles. It is also a historic building and has been listed as an Asset of Cultural Interest in the Monuments category since 1993.
The availability of the various areas is arranged so as not to interfere with the normal working day of staff at Madrid City Council.
The building has heating and air conditioning, natural light and room lighting, electricity supply included (but limited), access to toilets (including disabled) and venue access security control.
Capacity varies depending on the layout plans for the event.
