Metro (Subway-underground) is the easiest way to arrive at CSIC from Barajas International Airport.
All Terminals are connected by Line 8 (pink line) , which ends at Nuevos Ministerios station,
about 10 min. walk from the CSIC.
There are also buses coming from the airport, which arrive at María de Molina
station, about 15 min. walk from the CSIC.
There are several bus lines that stop by CSIC:
Bus 16: Moncloa - Avenida de Pío XII
Bus 19: Plaza de Cataluña - Plaza de Legazpi
Bus 51: Puerta del Sol - Plaza del Perú
Bus N1 (night service): Plaza de la Cibeles - Colonia Virgen del Corgijo
Serrano is a one way street going from Plaza de la República Argentina to the
crossing with María de Molina. This is why bus lines 16, 19, 51 and N1 circulate
on Serrano St. only when they are coming form the North (Pío XII, Plaza de Cataluña and
Plaza del Perú). For arrivals from the opposite direction (Moncloa, Legazpi and
Puerta del Sol), they circulate on Velázquez St., parallel to Serrano. The closest
stop to the CSIC is at the crossing between Velázquez and López de Hoyos.
There are other bus lines which have stops in nearby areas such as Plaza de la
República Argentina (Circle line) or Paseo de la Castellana (lines 27 and 45,
