PUERTA DE ALCALA
We will be guided on an official guided tour of Madrid, covering the historic city centre and the city’s treasures. We will see Puerta de Alcalá, the famous great gate created for Carlos III in 1778 and remains to this day.
The Plaza Cibeles is a historic square located at the intersection of three neighbourhoods: Centro, Retiro and Salamanca. Together with the Palacio de Cibeles and the Fuente de Cibeles, this is one of the main monuments of Madrid.
Located in the centre of Madrid, the Plaza Mayor is at the heart of Madrid and as such sees thousands of tourists every year. Since its formation in the 1400s, it has been destroyed by three fires, but remains a cultural meeting point, not unlike the 1700s when locals would gather to witness cackling ceremonies, carnivals, bullfights and executions. Due to its incredible size, it is regularly used for concerts and festivals, including the famous San Isidro festival.
PUERTA DEL SOL
Puerta del Sol provides access to the east side of the city, also known as Kilometre Zero which is the measuring point for all roads in Spain. From Puerta del Sol, you can see the famous statue Oso y Madroño and the Real Casa de Correos.
