One of the most popular plazas in Madrid. It has been the scenery for historical events in Spain. It's located in the heart of the city.
It is a meeting point with a lively atmosphere.
See the bear & berry statue end of the pedestrian way. There are many souvenir shops & fnac etc.
We enjoyed going to the Plaza and just walking the neighborhoods. It's the old city and it's style is unlike anywhere else. It's also known as Plaza Mayor.
Also located in the Puetra del Sol is the cute statue of a bear pawing the madrono. The madrono is a strawberry tree and the emblem of the city. This square is a popular meeting place for the locals.
This tower was added to Casa de Correos in 1866 to place this London-made clock gived by an important clockmaker to the city.
There are many shops, restaurants, cafe and hotels near the square. Most people would like gathering here especially at night.
