What to see in Cuzco-Castillejos in Madrid
You can enjoy a visit to the Paseo de la Castellana in Cuzco-Castillejos, and this avenue in the capital runs from Plaza de Colón, in the centre, to Nudo Norte.
This avenue has been in function since the beginning of the 20th century, and it currently consists of six central lanes (the main road) and four side lanes (service roads).
In this same area, you can see the building of the Instituto Nacional de Estadística (INE or National Statistics Institute), an autonomous organization in Spain that is in charge of general coordination of statistical services provided by the Administración General del Estado (or General Administration of the State).
It is also in charge of surveillance, control and supervision of the administration’s technical procedures.
Although the building was constructed in 1973, it was profoundly remodelled between the years of 2006 and 2008.
Architects César Ruiz-Larrea and Antonio Gómez Gutiérrez have completely transformed its original looks by giving it a colourful appearance, as coloured panels and numbers, ranging from 001 to 058, are now on its façade.
This façade is an artwork by sculptor José María Cruz Novillo, and it has been called Diafragma Decafónico de Digitos.
