The Carrión building (1933), also knowned as Capitol building, is one of the most loved in the "Madrileña" Gran Via (main street)... Located in the Callao square is far visible when walking up from Cibeles square. The Schweppes neon on the top of the building is one of the Gran Via and Madrid best known icons; It's has been showned in numerous films like The day of the best (el dia de la bestia) directed by Alex de la Iglesia.
