CentroCentro Cibeles de Cultura y Ciudadanía is a space for reflection and a venue for exhibiting the latest offerings in the fields of culture and innovation in the creative management of public spaces - all in the very heart of Madrid.
It is located in Cibeles Palace, one of the city's most iconic buildings, previously known as the Communications Palace. Designed by architects Antonio Palacios and Joaquín Otamendi, the building features Neo-Plateresque touches and influences from the Vienna Secession movement, brought together to bridge the gap between traditional and modern styles.
The building and its 12,207 m2 of marble, iron and glass were officially opened by King Alfonso XIII on 14 March, 1919.
Declared a Spanish Cultural Heritage Site in 1993, the palace became the property of Madrid City Hall and its seat in 2011.
