A statue of Pope John Paul II. Anyone who visits Spain is constantly reminded of its Catholic roots and history, as portrayed through its architecture, art, celebrations, and museums.
A typical Spanish park, great for romantic walks or just reflecting on your own.
A beautiful building downtown.
Sunset at the Royal Palace.
This sculpture portrays some gypsies dancing.
El Oso y el Madroño (The bear and the strawberry tree).
Located in the Puerta del Sol, this statue weighs almost 20 tons!
It is the official symbol of Madrid.
This is also a great place to people watch!
The park itself is over 350 acres and is a favorite summer retreat for Madrileños.
The Crystal Palace is one of the many beautiful buildings within the park, which also features a large artificial pond.
I haven't posted any door pics lately! This was actually taken at the University of Alcala, which is near Madrid. Alcala de Henares is the birthplace of Miguel de Cervantes.
