Nuevos Ministerios, Madrid

Nuevos Ministerios, Madrid 

with the Azca business centre behind.
I've taught at all the tall buildings you see but not yet at Nuevos Ministerios, itself! Only a matter of time - I have taught at government departments but at other locations in Madrid.

Fascinating - I bet these foreground trees are way, way older than the buildings!

Not of the ones to the left, (30s) but certainly the more modern ones directly ahead (from 1979 onwards). How do I know this? Because this is the site of the main Madrid horse racing course until the early 30s (El Hipodromo) and none of the photos I've seen show any trees here whatsoever! These umbrella pines could have been transported here in the 50s or 60s already well-established, and in fact I think this must have been so. So we are both right!!!!
Thank you Larry!

The centre of government administration, George. I wasn't sure I could actually go in here but no one stopped me. Security is normally tight!

Very strong trees, Fred!!!. Called Umbrella Pines. The Imperial Spanish Eagle nests in the top and they wouldn't choose a nesting site that blew over in a mere hurricane!
