Puerta de Alcalá
The Puerta de Alcalá is one of the most representative monuments of Madrid. It is located at the beginning of Calle Alcalá, in Plaza de la Independencia.
The Puerta de Alcalá was inaugurated in 1778 by Francisco Sabatini, an Italian architect who worked most of his life in Spain. Previously there was another Puerta de Alcala of brick, but Carlos III ordered his demolition and reconstruction.
Because of its location, in the northwest corner of the Buen Retiro Park, the visit to the Puerta de Alcalá is a good opportunity to visit the Buen Retiro too.
