    When statues of proslavery leaders are being pulled down, this edifice celebrating the victory of Fascism over democracy in Spain goes unremarked. Sadly there is no explanation or context for this mem...  more »

    At the entrance of the A-6 motorway, consider it historical value, and enter into the debate of whether we should keep it or not is one thing, being a tribute to the triumph of Franco on the Republic it is a thing. Scroll only to see it is another and a waste of time. Are you going by Moncloa you're going to see vale, but do not seek it with determination or commitment if you miss. Locals skipped it as art.

    Very good bow, to photograph, how good is that in front of the arch is the Tower Moncloa, you can climb up to the top floor and see Madrid.

  • The monument in itself is very impressive, but as it stands in the middle of a very busy traffic square/motor way exit you cannot get close. I would not recommend to come here only for this.
  • It's very nice but the place is a little bit dirty
  • Monument to the fascist victory at the peak of dictatorship.
  • It's just an arch. I even dont know for who is it stood for, or for which war. Dont know if we should see it closer, did not see any signs for a path.
  • Entry gate to Madrid from west.

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
