  • Not only a landmark in Madrid and Real Madrid, remember that it is the "sacred" place to celebrate all the titles of Real Madrid. Located in a strategic point opposite the Town Hall, the American home and far away like the impressive Puerta de Alcalá. Not only photographically of day if not also of night

  • An iconic location from Madrid. Stunning views from one of the most beautiful areas of the city
  • Nothing special just a busy square. Convenient for the airport bus.
