This building was inaugurated in 1880 because of the efforts of a small group of artists. In it there are several exhibition halls, elegant halls where festivals and the Carnival dance are celebrated every year. The Círculo de Bellas Artes has a large roof terrace from which you can see the entire city. The best views of Madrid are undoubtedly on this roof. Enjoying a beer on the rooftop chillout while watching the sunset is a more than recommendable experience.
You can come with family, friends or just have a drink and see the beautiful views of the city. If you like photography, this is a magical place to photograph. It is at Calle de Alcalá, 42. And the nearest metro stops are Sevilla and Banco de España, both of which are reached by Metro Madrid's red line number 2.

Let's go with some history to contextualize this beautiful place. When it was inaugurated in 1880 thanks to the efforts of a small group of artists, not many people knew it. In its origins it was a rather restricted society, but with cultural diffusion. Its first president was the painter Juan Martínez de Espinosa. Between 1880 and 1926, the Circle changed incredibly a total of ten times its headquarters: Barquillo, 5; Madera, 8; Lobo, 10; Abada, 2; Libertad, 16; Barquillo, 11; Alcalá, 7; Alcalá, 14 and finally Alcalá, 42.
During the early years of the twentieth century, passed through the directive of the Circle of Fine Arts relevant figures of the cultural life of the time as Jacinto Benavente or Carlos Arniches. The young Picasso also attended his painting classes as a pupil and Ramón María del Valle-Inclán sat in his decorated rooms.
