Plaza del Callao is one of the most central and busiest squares in the entire city of Madrid since it is crossed by Gran Vía. It is a commercial area full of shops and entertainment. The buildings have a great personality and are influenced by American architecture as for instance the Cinema Callao building. Plaza del Callao holds a high concentration of movie theatres; most notably the 1920’s Palacio de la Prensa -an outstanding red brick building- and the Palacio de la Música.
