It was a great experience to walk along Alcala Street from Sol Square til that beautiful place. The best time to get the optime photo is after 6:00 pm when the suns sets and the solar lights fall covering it all.
A set of ceremonial arches and a lovely plaza adjacent to Retiro park. Well worth a visit if you are nearby-I enjoyed it more than the Puerta del Sol or Plaza Mayor. Just be aware that it's full of traffic!
For the last three days we stayed at the beautiful Palacio de Patos in Granada. Everything about it was wonderful and when we were checking out I happened to mention that we were staying at their hotel in Madrid. Sr. Francisco Perez immediately called the...More
The Puerta de Alcala is one of the most beautiful squares in Madrid because the architecture of the gate is very good. There is always plenty of traffic in this square so it may be difficult to take a photo without the traffic.
Impressive Monument. Onate. Situated at a very busy intersection with multiple roads crossing. Your caught up more in your own safety after you exit than where you have been. Gardens for photo opportunities which was moderately impressive The gardens are, nice, well maintained but not...More
This grand triumphal entrance gate is located in a roundabout at Plaza de la Independencia. The top is adorned with sculptures. Traffic is very busy here. I needed to be patient to take a good photo of the fountain without too many distracting vehicles.
One of the great entrance ways into Madrid. It's a great symbol for Madrid and who knew but it precedes the more famous Arc de Triomphe in Paris and the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. Best of all it means you are right outside the most...More
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights frame the neighbourhood of Barrio Salamanca. With beautiful condominium buildings that make up most blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of
opportunities for shopping or checking out the stylish displays. The locals here are polished and fashionable, the atmosphere is leisurely, and the lush Retiro Park on the southern border is yet another opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. A stroll through Barrio Salamanca is all about admiring the beautiful architecture, window-shopping, and people-watching in this upper-crust corner of Madrid.
