This fanciful building is the headquarters of the Spanish Post Office. Maybe I wouldn't mind postal increases in Spain if I knew it were going to towards the upkeep of this buidling.

In the picture you can also see Fuente de Cibeles (Fountain of Cybele) which stands in the middle of the traffic circle. This fountain shows the goddess of nature sitting in her chariot which is drawn by two lions. It was designed in the 18th century.
