Plaza de la Moncloa
  • Route 1: Historical Madrid

The Plaza de la Moncloa is in the west of Madrid. From there you can see buildings in the neo-Herrerian style built during Franco's time, such as the Headquarters of the Air Force, the Arch of Victory and the Moncloa Lighthouse. The Arch of Victory was commissioned by Franco to commemorate the victory in the Spanish Civil War. A bit further on is the Moncloa Lighthouse, a lighting and communications tower for the Madrid Town Hall.
