Puerta del Sol is one of the most famous squares in Madrid and Spain. A must for all tourists. It is located in one of the most significant and historic buildings of this city. It is located at Kilometer Zero, point where the Spanish radial roads begin. It is marked with a plaque on the ground, just in front of the Real Casa de Correos.
This building has a significant clock in its main tower, where every year, thousands of people gather to celebrate, at the sound of their unique chimes, the beginning of the New Year.
We can also find, near the equestrian statue of Carlos III, the monument that represents the city; “The bear and the Madroño”. A small statue, with a bear climbing a strawberry tree, that gives origin to the name of the city of Madrid.
