Kilometer o

Puerta del Sol is one of the most emblematic places in Madrid. Because it is the historical center of the city and of the country, since it is indeed the "kilometer 0" of all national roads in Spain, and because it is a place with history, past and present.

It is one of the common meeting points for young people in Madrid, it is one of the best located places when you have to go shopping in the center and it is also known for the very famous New Year's Eve celebrations. Puerta del Sol is a must-see for all visitors of Madrid, despite the hustle and bustle, I highly recommend it.

In the last years, the authorities have tried, with relative success, to clear the area limiting traffic to most vehicles. From "Sol", as it is commonly known among the people of Madrid, it is easy to start a walking route in the old part of town: Preciados, Arenal, Carmen, Mayor, just next to Gran Vía, the Barrio de las Letras, Paseo de la Catellana, Plaza de las Cortes...

Always lively

Puerta del Sol is one of the most emblematic places in Madrid. It is also the Kilometer 0 of the city, from this point all the distances with the other cities in the peninsula are calculated. It is a place always lively, from there Preciados street starts, which is one of the most commercial in the city, but it is also a meeting point for many people before going out to bars and restaurants of the neighborhood.

The first time I went to Madrid I saw Puerta del Sol at 2 am, going out to a club nearby, and what a surprise to see there was a lot of traffic and many people everywhere, because I thought it would be dead at that time of the night! In particular, people come to celebrate New Year's and eat 12 grapes in front of the town hall clock.
