“Puerta de Europa” – the “Gates to Europe” in Spanish are also known as KIO towers. They were on our list “to see” even before we came to Madrid. When travelling, we like to have some balance in visiting sights that represent either modern architecture or architecture from previous centuries. If there is something that stands out in modern architecture, like the “Gates to Europe” building – we need to see it! So we visited “Puerta de Europa” on the last day of our stay in Madrid (February 2017), just before our flight back to Berlin.
Each tower is 114m high and they are the second tallest twin towers after the “Torres de Santa Cruz.” They were both built with the initial thought of being 15 degrees at an incline, the same way they were made back in 1996. Once finished, they were the first inclined skyscrapers in the world. We were fascinated by the shape of the buildings and wondered how it hadn’t collapsed.
