This golden ball is at the top of the main façade of the Bank of Spain in Madrid, above a big clock. The Bank of Spain (Spanish: Banco de España) is the national central bank of Spain, and also one of the Madrid’s most emblematic buildings. It has a privileged location within the city -its façades give onto Cibeles Square, Paseo del Prado and Alcalá Street. It was built 1882-1891.
Taken a cloudy winter’s day.
