  • This is a central and busy roundabout in Madrid. While the roundabout itself is of less interest, the lovely gate in the middle of the roundabout is beautiful and provides several photo-ops.  more »
  • The Plaza de la Independencia is located in the heart of downtown Madrid at the Northwest end of the Retiro Park. The featured Puerta de Alcala, a former City gate stands in the middle of bustling traffic. The place itself is hardly attractive. It is loud, hectic and stressful. The goal is nice in the middle of the square, the powerful and mighty acts and dominates the entire space.

  • Square of independence is a square of the city of Madrid, located on the Northwest corner of the Retiro Park, the square is crossed by the Alcalá Street that marks the boundary between the districts of Salamanca Retiro and the North South. The central roundabout of the square is occupied by the Alcalá gate, inaugurated in 1778. She is one of the five ancient doors that gave access to the city.
