Alcalá 16

A listed building by the architect Ricardo Bastida, in the monument category, considered to be of special interest by the Madrid Regional Ministry of Education and Culture. It was originally the headquarters of the Banco de Bilbao. It stands out for its impressive facade, with sculptures by Quintin de la Torre, as well as for the master craftsmanship of the stained-glass windows and murals in its central rotunda, created by Aurelio Arteta. The two monumental quadrigas that crown the towers were sculpted in bronze by Higinio de Basterra.

Between 1975 y 1981, the architect Pedro Bidagor Lasarte extended the building into calle de Sevilla, respecting the architectural design of the original building and its main facade.

It was fully renovated in 2001.
