Love these iconic structures that define the modern Madrid skyline. They mark the beginning of the corporate tower section of Madrid.

The Kio Towers at the Plaza de Castilla seem to be leaning toward each other, making the sight very unusual because one is afraid that they may fall down. We passed this place several times when we were in Madrid.

Not much to say really but does seem to defy gravity. If you get in a lift at the bottom left hand corner you would exit at the top right!!

Interesting towers to see. Nice place to start exploring parts of madrid inside and outside the centre. An area to 'discover' Madrid for yourself apart from just Sol and Gran Via. If you want the centre, bus 27 is a nice trip down paseo castellana, passing many wonderful buildings and cibeles and neptuno fountains. Past the Prado and to atocha... More

I have a thing for leaning towers, and these two are a wonderful surprise. One of the few examples of modern art/architecture I actually like.

When I was last in Madrid - over 10 years ago - these twin towers looked really futuristic and modern, but this time they really looked quite dated. Perhaps not worth a special trip to go and see them but if you're passing, they're interesting to look at.

The Torres Kio have very unusual architecture because they are leaning towards each other and people wonder if they are safe. The Paseo de la Castellana passes between the two towers. The towers contain the Bankia bank, a large bank with a controversial past.

Notwithstanding that towers are located out of way from most of main attractions, it worths a visit. If you are arround of Santiago Bernabel Stadium follow north on the Paseo Catellana.

The Puerta de Europa is quite far away from the center and it takes time to get there i.e. by metro but I think it is worth it. A photo of you in front of the skyscrapers might become an excellent profile picture. In additon there is an art gallery nearby.
