Alameda Urquijo / Bertendona

The headquarters of the Bank of Spain and the BBVA lead us, between eclectic facades and bat windows, towards Alameda Urquijo and to the residence and neo-Gothic stone and brick church of the Jesuits. We continue along Urquijo until we find Bertendona street on our left.

The Campos Elíseos Theatre, hidden in Bertendona, seems to be ashamed of being different, of being modernist. It contrasts with the sheer monumentality of its neighbour, the post office building, an example of the Francoist architecture, looking onto Urquijo without complexes.
