Puerta del Sol, Madrid: 93 reviews and 152 photos
This area represents the very heart of Madrid. For two reasons, first because it contains the kilometre cero (the mark from which distances from the city are measured). Also because it has been the chief meeting place over the years. Before newspapers, people came here to find out the latest news or gossip. Also there was one of the largest brothels here, another attraction for men from out of town to visit.
Still Madrid's most popular meeting spot is by the monument with symbols of Madrid ( a bear and a madrano (strawberry tree). Whilst you are here look out for the Tio Pepe sign that lights up at night.
