plaza de españa
You just have to cross the street from our apartments to fully enter one of the largest squares in Spain (36,900 m2). Surrounded by small charming gardens and trees, a large fountain dedicated to Miguel de Cervantes and his two most illustrious characters, Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, stands out in the center.
Worthy of note are the two huge buildings beyond the whole complex; The Madrid Tower (1957) and the «España» Building (1953). In addition, the location of the square cannot be better, since two of the most emblematic streets of the capital lead to it; Princesa Street and the famous Gran Vía.
Without a doubt, we are facing one of the most significant and well-known streets of Madrid. There are many theaters and cinemas that have become «musical theaters», being the section between the Plaza de Callao and the Plaza de España known as the Madrid Broadway.
Gran Via also has restaurants and numerous clothing stores of national and international fashion brands.
It is interesting to look at the buildings that compose it, as well as they have different architectural styles (historicist, Frenchified, rationalist, American style …).
what surrounds our apartments
temple of debod
It is difficult to see Egyptian constructions outside the country if it is not in museums, but in Madrid, you can see the Temple of Debod, very close to Plaza de España; a construction gifted by Egypt in 1968 to help them save other temples during the lifting of the Aswan dam.
It was dismantled stone by stone and reassembled in the beautiful Parque del Oeste. You can visit the inside of the temple where you will find typical hieroglyphs preserved on the walls.
The Madrid Cathedral, one of the most modern cathedrals in European capitals (built between the 19th and 20th centuries) is just 800 meters from our apartments.
For this reason, it has a mixture of more current styles such as neoclassical, neo-Gothic and neo-Romanesque.
The building is dedicated to Our Lady of Almudena, patron saint of the city, and it was consecrated in 1993 by Pope John Paul II during his fourth trip to Spain.
In front of the Almudena Cathedral stands out the Royal Palace, built by Felipe V in the place where the old fortress stood.
Its 135,000 m2 and 3,418 rooms make it the largest Royal Palace in Western Europe.
It is surrounded by three beautiful parks; Plaza de Oriente, the Sabatini Gardens and the Campo del Moro garden.
what surrounds our apartments
The Royal Theater, one of the most important in Spain and Europe, closes the monumental complex of Plaza de Oriente.
It was inaugurated in 1850 although it has undergone several renovations over the years. Although it works primarily as an opera, other shows and events are also held.
puerta del sol
1.2 km separate us from the most restless square in Madrid, Puerta del Sol, where the coming and going of Madrilenians and tourists is almost constant at any time of the day.
It is usually a meeting point to go shopping, go out at night, or simply go for a walk or have a drink in the surroundings.
You will find the mythical statue of the Bear and the Strawberry Tree – El Oso y el Madroño– (symbol of Madrid), and an equestrian statue of Carlos III, here.
But undoubtedly, the most significant place in the square is the Casa de Correos and more specifically its famous clock, which with its chimes welcomes the new year every December 31st at 12 pm. Since 1950, Puerta del Sol has been the zero kilometer of Spanish radial roads.
Prado Museum, Thyssen Museum and Reina Sofía Museum: these three museums located on the Paseo del Prado form what is known as the Golden Triangle of Art. These are three essential art galleries that house a very extensive collection of pictorial works. For something they are among the most visited in the world.
Many are the artists that you will see on its walls; In the Prado Museum, Goya, Velázquez and El Greco stand out, in the Reina Sofía Museum, Picasso, Dalí and Miró, and in the Thyssen, Duccio, Jan van Eyck, Roy Lichtenstein and Lucian Freud.
