Named for the grand looking national central bank which overlooks the area, the Banco de España station opens out onto the Fuente de Cibeles, an impressive fountain where all the city’s inhabitants gather whenever there’s something to be celebrated: it turned into a sea of red and gold after Spain’s 2010 World Cup win. Cibeles is a hub for Madrid transport: if you’re travelling through the city at night, this is the terminus for all the night buses, convenient if you’re taking part in Madrid’s 24 hour party lifestyle.
This area is really a crossroads for much of central Madrid: Gran Via and Sol are to the west, the Retiro to the east, and the Paseo del Prado to the south. If you want to be within walking distance of any of these, it’s a great area to choose. Stay in one of Chueca’s trendy hotels or hostels, or splash out on the impressive Catalonia Gaudi.
