About this place
Se pretendía dotar al Madrid liberal, en su mismo corazón, de un espacio público representativo. Se hizo realidad en 1862, convirtiéndola en un ámbito urbano de monumental centralidad, con carácter representativo y en polo de atracción para actividades comerciales, administrativas y financieras.

Puerta del Sol is the centre of Madrid city and is always bustling with activity .There are lots of shops, bars and discos near Sol. Also close to Sol is Plaza Santa Ana – a nice plaza with a lot of different bars and cafés. Crossing Plaza Santa Ana you will reach La Calle de las Huertas- the core…

Art Museum
“With over 1,600 paintings, it was once the second largest private collection in the world after the British Royal Collection. A competition was held to house the core of the collection in 1987–88 after Baron Thyssen, having tried to enlarge his Museum in Lugano(Villa Favorita), searched for a location in Europe. The Thyssen-Bornemisza fills the historical gaps in its counterparts' collections: in the Prado's case this includes Italian primitives and works from the English, Dutch and German schools, while in the case of the Reina Sofia it concerns Impressionists, Expressionists, and European and American paintings from the 20th century. ”

Church
“ A beautiful building, outside and in, and a place where those seeking a spiritual connection will surely find it. Located next to the Grand Palace in the heart of Madrid the Cathedral has an interesting history. Built in fits and starts over 100 years, you don't get a sense of dislocation or disorganization inside the space. What you'll find here is calm and meditative despite its obvious attraction to the tourists. There are boxes for donations throughout the church, but there is no actual fee to visit, pray, or simply tour the history here. Be sure to make the stop when in the area, you won't regret it.”
