The so-called “Viaduct of the Fifteen Eyes”, or more properly, the fifteen spans, is 130 metres long and 35 metres wide. It was built by the Spanish civil engineer Eduardo Torroja between 1929 and 1933 to span the Cantarranas stream into the Ciudad Universitaria area.
Today only two of the fifteen spans remain open to traffic and pedestrians; the rest have been turned into warehouses. At this point, the two-span tunnel under the A-6 motorway provides an interesting play of light.
The filming permits to shoot on the streets of the city of Madrid are managed by the Filming Authorization Bureau. For more information on these permits and how to process them, read the How to film in Madrid page.
