Madrid | Contrast at Puerta del Sol

WI_e4019.jpg

The Puerta del Sol is an important and much visited square which can be considered the very centre of Spain. The site was once one of the gates leading into historic Madrid, decorated by the symbol of a sun - therefore the name of the square. The statue in the foreground represents Carlos III.
