They are located at the end of the long paseo de La Castellana (begoa metro stop or, if you want to walk a bit, you can get off at the stop before Plaza de Castilla, see the KIO towers and then continue on foot to here, along the paseo de La Castellana). They are all different from each other in the structure (the one I liked the most is the Espacio Tower) and since they are aligned it is not always easy to see all four together; the area on the ground is well arranged, with some statues, modern fountains, a bit of greenery and special installations, but in any case the area remains rather desolate: perhaps it also depends on the time at which you visit or the fact that the skyscrapers are only 4 and do not constitute therefore a real directional center, as can be that of Naples, or perhaps because of the absence of shops on the ground.
Not so amazing like others cities with tall skyscrapers but complete the 16/9 panorama scene of madrid. When you are very close to the site you can appreciate the base of the tower number 5! Still under construction since the beginning! A hope they find the money to finish it.
