For Architecture Buffs
Feb. 2020
This is one of a number of note-worthy buildings that line Madrid’s most famous street, the Gran Via. I wouldn't tell someone to go out of their way to look at it but most likely you will find yourself on the Gran Via at some stage when in Madrid and in that case, it’s worth looking out for it.
It’s famous for its Art Deco style and the advanced technology that was used to build it in 1931-1933. Even at that time, it was winning design awards and in 2018, it was declared a Monument of Cultural Interest. However, it’s probably of most interest to architecture buffs.
It’s easily recognised by the giant Schweppes sign.

1933 Art Deco building
Oct. 2019
The corner facade of this beautiful Art Deco building, in my opinion, is downgraded by the large Schweppes and smaller Vodafone signs.
Granted, at night, the Schweppes sign presents an amazing display.

Located on Plaza Del Callao and along Gran Via is Edificio Carrion ,the iconic building famous with the neon lit Schweppes sign that adds to the wonderful architecture along Gran Via known as the " Madrilenian Broadway " .
Constructed between 1931 - 1933 by architect's Luiz Martinez Feduchi Ruis and Vincente Eced Y Eced ,its a glorious building built in the Art Deco style of architecture that is so pleasing on the eye and is one of the most photographed buildings along Gran Via.
Easy to locate on Plaza Del Callao, most definitely well worth checking out if your in the area.

Heritage Building
Oct. 2018 • Couples
Edificio Carrion is a Spanish National Heritage listed building. It is highly regarded and justifiably so. It is a rather magnificent building constructed in the 1930s. It is conveniently located on the corner of Calle Gran Via and Calle de Jacometrezo. It seems to take over the area from all other buildings, such is its dominance over the whole location. It's worth stopping by for a short time to admire it.

Iconic

This building is imposing in its own way and doesn't fit in to its surroundings but it is unique and iconic in Madrid.

Nice building
May 2018 • Friends
One of the most iconic buildings in Madrid, Edificio Carrion is without a shadow of a doubt one of the most recognisable buildings Plaza De Callao .
I believe the building was constructed in the 1930's and blends in effortlessly with the stunning architecture in and around the plaza and Grand Via.
The building certainly makes for some great photographic opportunities and if you enjoy grand architecture your in the right location.
Edificio Carrion is easy to locate on Plaza Del Callao.
Well worth checking out.

This is another striking art deco building in Gran Via. It was built in the early 1930s and it is noticeable with the Schweppes advert. The building was restored in 2007.

Photographed again
Aug. 2017 • Couples
Back in Madrid and came to the Metro at Banca de Espana. From there you can look up Gran Via to this interesting looking building. Reminds me a little of the Post Office tower in London.

Very striking
Mar. 2017 • Couples
This building is certainly striking and reminds me of similar ones in Times Square or on Piccadilly Circus. It is one of the landmarks along Gran Via and photogenic in its own right though not everyone will like it.
