Площадь Пуэрта-дель-Соль — центральная площадь испанской столицы, одна из самых известных достопримечательностей Мадрида. В древности на этом месте располагался один из входов в стене, окружавшей Мадрид. Средневековые города имели обычно одну центральную площадь, но вдоль городских стен оставляли некоторое свободное пространство для оборонительного манёвра. На подобном пространстве вблизи «Ворот Солнца» со временем и образовалась площадь, напоминающая обычную широкую улицу.
Название площади в Мадриде связано с тем, что когда-то между улицами Алькала и Каррера-де-Сан-Херонимо были «Солнечные ворота». Ворота были построены во времена правления короля Карлоса I по его повелению. Историки не пришли к единому мнению о происхождении названия собственно ворот (которые дали имя всей площади). Одни считают, что своим именем ворота обязаны тому, что через них можно было наблюдать восход солнца (так как это был восточный въезд в город), другие склоняются к тому, что причиной явилось солнце, изображенное на воротах.

The nucleus of all commercial and touristic activities en Madrid capital. The six major highways that cover the whole regions of Spain originates or count their kilometre distance from Puerta de Sol. There is a 24 hour live here. Major shopping malls close at 22:00h but other smaller shops, bars and restaurants are open all through the night. There is good security here as can police on foot, on horseback, cars stroll the streets up and down. Anyone visiting Madrid without stopping at Puerta del Sol is like he/she never visited Madrid. There is where the action and fun starts and ends.

Great architecture, culture, food and people. Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff at the Hotel Europa where I stayed. Good restaurants about a 3 minute walk away and the shopping district is easily accessible using the Metro. The only downside was the Metro instructions were hard to understand as the English option didn't work on the ticket machines, but that wasn't a major problem.

Wide space in the heart of Madrid. Lots of people during day and night time. Street artists entertain the tourists with funny shows. About attractions: a bear statue with a sort of legend: if touched, it brings you luck. There is also the 0km, the point from which all Spanish streets start. Try to spot it!

Very busy square! Much night life, day life, all the above. Zone zero because the main streets either part ways or will point you back to this location. Very near other monumental places (within walking distance).

Large square that's in the middle of vast amounts of shops. There are loads of roads leading that have clothes and make up stores that then lead to other squares with more stores. It was amazing, I know we didn't manage to go down every street but the shopping and sights are absolutely amazing

For starters, the metro getting there was so easy, I couldn't believe it! As for the place itself was very touristy. You can take that how ever you'd like but it was kind of cool seeing people from different places in Spain and also around the world. One thing I have to say about this place is that you cannot be shy and you have to love to dance. There is so much going on it is hard to wrap your head around. If you are looking for a more Spanish cultural experience, I'd recommend traveling outside of Sol. Just outside Sol there are a lot of shopping spots. I was there for three nights and I could not complain. It was a great time!

Lively public square with restaurants, pubs, discos, cafes, shopping malls, street artists performing etc. One stop shop for all entertainment needs! But since its a tourist spot, prices are a bit inflated! The streets are Paved and the lighting is beautiful at night! People gather here to just relax chit chat and enjoy the ambience all around. Great place to unwind after a hard days work!

Very lively Plaza in the center of Madrid. Point zero can be found here. This is the place where all major highways begin in Spain. The strawberry bear statue is here. A famous sign in the city. You can shop, eat, stroll, listen to music and people watch.
