Went to the top of the building for a 360 view of the city. Maps were located at each side to recognize what are the buildings about. Do not regret the experience.

We went to the Palacio de Linares and we saw one exhibition of the Inca Garcilaso and another of the life of Santa Teresa. Both exhibitions were very good and informative.

Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights
frame the neighbourhood of Barrio Salamanca. With
beautiful condominium buildings that make up most
blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and
quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large
shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle
Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will
reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of
