The Alcala Gate is an icon of the city. We stopped by and took some pictures of the place. There is nothing more to do.

Is just a regular gate and you can't come really close because is in the middle of the road. If you are close come by and take some pictures but nothing really much too see and admire.

The Puerta de Alcala is worth visiting, it only takes a few minutes to take a few photos and is strategically positioned just by one of the gates to the Retiro park, the beginning of Serrano street and a couple of minutes from the City Hall building (Edificio Correos).

lots of terraces around the gate and spectacular at night with all the lights around it. Had a drink at a bar next to it and had a good time.

One of the great simbols of Madrid. Don't miss it at night cause it's magnificent. Took pictures from all sides... and then went to the Retiro garden!
