The 7th edition of Open House Madrid festival kicks off on September 24, the most important event of Madrid's architecture that can be enjoyed until September 26. Under the slogan 'I don't even know where I live' get ready for a few days in which exclusive guided tours will be offered to more than a hundred buildings and architecture studios in the city of Madrid, plus many other surprises.

The event will allow you to visit places normally closed to the public. These guided tours will be complemented by twelve open-air routes that will allow you to get to know the city's architectural points of interest. 

You will be able to visit the most emblematic and the most unknown buildings, places like the IE Tower, the fifth tallest skyscraper in Madrid, located in the financial heart of Madrid, or the famous Westin Palace Hotel, the Palacio de Liria, the Ateneo de Madrid, the Palacio de Santa Cruz, the Palacio de Maudes or the Concordia Bridge, in Valdebebas. These and many other architectural gems. 

As for the outdoor routes, you can discover, for example, the decorative Madrid modernism on facades and buildings, or sign up for a route along the Paseo de la Castellana, from the Plaza de Colón to the Glorieta de Emilio Castelar, discovering the old nineteenth-century mansions that are in the area.

This edition of the festival pays special tribute to the architect Luis Gutiérrez Soto, responsible for the famous Callao Cinema in Madrid and the Bar Museo Chicote, among many other buildings. An urban route has been designed in his honor that will take in the main points of the city where the architect left his mark.

The 7th Open House Madrid Congress will be held on September 24 at the Auditorio Caja de Música in Madrid, an annual event where the future of our cities will be debated and the 3rd City Awards will be presented. 

Don't miss out on the main party of Madrid's architecture!
