Located at the Plaza de España near the Edificio España is Torre de Madrid. The high-rises share the same architect, Julio Otamendi. The white, concrete building became the tallest in Western Europe when it opened in 1957, a distinction it maintained for ten years. The Tower of Madrid has an elevation of 466 feet or 541 feet when you add in the antenna. At inception, the 36 floors were a mix of residential and commercial space. The landmark now also houses the Barceló Torre de Madrid hotel.
