  • I have mixed feelings that refers to this site. On the one hand, is supposed to be here to celebrate unity with Latin America, with others with other peoples... But at the same time, being Spanish, always has a one the taste of knowing that what was done was an extermination. However, it is pretty good place to start a day of shopping and buy like crazy in the barrio salamanca.

  • Large square dedicated to the discovery of America. Very nice. The discovery gardens are found in the nerve center of the capital, delimited by the streets of Goya, Serrano, of the Spanish Navy and the Recoletos axis. The old Mint and ringer occupied these lands until the 1970s, date in which the square was remodeled and created gardens and the ancient Cultural Centre of the town. Today is a place of reference for locals since its excellent location makes them one of the main venues for the celebration of all kinds of events: acts of commemoration of the Día de la Hispanidad, fairs, demonstrations and sporting events. The original design of the gardening had large geometric areas of grass in the middle of the square, accompanied by flower beds and large tree specimens such as pines, cypresses and magnolias in the sidebars. Due to the leaks produced in underground plants and at the expense of water for maintenance, in 2006 the Prairies were replaced by ornamental gravel. Currently under its surface there are public parking Plaza de Colón and the Fernan Gomez Centro Cultural de la Villa. The discovery gardens owe their name to Cristóbal Colón. A large neo-Gothic monument with the statue of Cristóbal Colón presided over the gardens from 1972 to 2009, year in which on the occasion of the works of the Prado-Recoletos axis was again transferred to what was its initial location, the center of the Rotunda of the plaz a Colon. The monument is located in calle Serrano side to the discovery of America, consisting of four large blocks of concrete with prints and texts in the history of the discovery. In these central gardens wave since 2002 the largest of Spain, with 294 sq. flag - 21 x 14 - length and 35 kilograms of weight. It is supported by a mast of 50 meters of height that spins in the direction of the wind which prevents it from winds. Looking at this flag was placed in 2014 a statue in honor to the Admiral Blas de Lezo.
