Happy St. Patrick´s Day!!!




Ireland has exported throughout the world the celebration of St. Patrick. Madrid Cibeles statue is dressed this weekend green in honor of the colors of Ireland.With this symbolic act, Madrid has joined the "green wave", which dresses in this color buildings and monuments around the world, like the London Eye in London, the Empire State Building in New York; Burj Al Arab in Dubai, the Table Mountain in South Africa, the Sky Tower in Auckland, Niagara Falls, Canada, or Italy's Leaning Tower, among others. This is not the first time that Ireland and the city of Madrid get together in honor of St. Patrick: Last year, it was the Puerta de Alcala which dyed green for the same reason.
