My favourite place for sunsets in Madrid is the square between tha Royal Palace and the Almudena Cathedral. From that terrace you can see the whole west of Madrid, towards the Casa de Campo and it makes a quiet wonderful palce for a sunset...
Kilometro 0 (Point 0 of all the roads)
In the Puerta del Sol, just in front of the building where the big clock tower is, you will find the point where all the roads of Spain begin: The km.0.
It's a good meeting point, as everybody knows it!
I just love those many...
I just love those many different and colorful facades of the city. Just wander around through small lanes and streets, cross the many squares and look out for views like that. This picture was taken on Plaza de Oriente.
Just walking around towns, from time to time you come across unannounced pleasures. This was a pleasant experience in Madrid called Plaza de la Villa which featured a statue of Don Alvara de Bazan. No, I have no idea either in answer to your next question.

A walk on the hills to the west side of the city, from Puerta de Toledo, down to the Manzanares (river) with the old Puente de Toledo to cross it. Behind stadium 'Vicente Calderón' (Atletico de Madrid) and have a great view on the city. A visit to the old cemetary of San Isidro is worth while!
It is what it is
Calle del Codo means Elbow street and Calle del Cordon means Rope street. But I didn't need to tell you that, did I?

Street performers are not common in my city. I found them amusing and attractive. Also they are very creative.
