Puerta del Sol y Plaza Mayor

The symbol of Madrid

Kilometer Zero (All roads lead to Sol!)

A building near Sol with paintings of coffee, tea, and cocoa

My favorite trivia for the Plaza Mayor - the paint color was chosen by public vote! The city painted three sample colors on the walls and the citizens selected their favorite.

The lamppost bases depict historic scenes from the Plaza, such as Carnivals.
