  Puerta de Alcala
by vivalasteph

This proud gateway to the city on the Calle de Alcala is a showstopper by day and by night. I arrived in Madrid after 10PM and was enchanted as we drove around this beauty, lit up as a welcoming beacon. During the day, brave the traffic of the rotary to get great views through the five arches of the Plaza de Cibeles and the Gran Via.
