still MNCARS...


The MNCARS elevator towers (3) were constructed in 1988 by the British architect Ian Ritchie, glass and hi-tec ‘masterpieces’… a long way from the construction of the original building the ‘Hospital General de San Carlos’ by José de Hermosilla and Francisco Sabatini in the XVIII century.

I love these amazing lift towers; they complement the building so well.

The open elevators would make me dizzy, I think. Very interesting view.
