world pictures Spain: Madrid

The Edificio España, rising behind the Cervantes Monument, was completed in 1953 as time Spain's tallest building. Owned from then until 2005 by Metrovacesa, which used it variously for offices and apartments as well as for a Crowne Plaza hotel, the building was sold to a French company, Gecina, then to Santander Real for 389 million euros. Despite plans to convert it into luxury apartments, as of 2012 the building was empty.
