This is the most popular and commercial area, connected to several pedestrian shopping streets. 500 years ago, this was a gate of the city, with a sol drawn on it. It represents today the geographical centre (marked “kilometre 0”) when measuring the distance to other Spanish cities. It has always been a popular place for demonstrations and meetings.

Mention the "real casa de correos", seat of the presidency of Madrid government.

Address: The "center" of Madrid

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
