La Puerta del Sol
Date: June 7, 2000 View of Puerta del Sol

The statue of Carlos III on horseback is shrouded for cleaning. It needed it because I had a difficult time reading the script on the base from the pictures I took for that purpose. You can see the result of my work when you see the prior year's photo of this equestrian statue two links down.

We are looking south past the Oso y Madroño toward the Ayuntamiento (capitol, governing building) of the Comunidad de Madrid (state or province of Madrid). The Kilómetro 0 plaque (next link) is embedded in the sidewalk near the curb and very close to the main entrance to the Ayuntamiento.
