This paving slad located outside the Casa de Correos marks the point from whick all the roads radiating out from Madrid are measured. It could be said to be the center of Spain.
I must admit I was a little disappointed at how small and insignificant it was, if it had not been pointed out to me I'm sure I would have missed it. It was also badly in need of renovation, over the years its been worn away by the feet of many tourists as myself.

Address: The "center" of Madrid
Directions: Outside the Casa de Correos (now a government building), Puerta del Sol.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
