Puerta del Sol: the clock with the changing of the year

Because it is precisely at this point where you will find the so-called "Kilometre Zero, from where all the Spanish radial roads start.

Hapsburg Madrid: all very real

Princes, kings and queens have walked and still walk the streets of Madrid, but the first monarchs arrived in the 16th century when Madrid had a population of barely 30,000 inhabitants, can you believe it? According to the latest census data, Madrid has more than 3 million inhabitants in the city centre alone!

Philip II, the first king to settle in the city, began to expand and develop it. It was he and his dynasty, the Habsburgs, who promoted the city's main historical tourist attractions: the Royal Palace and the surrounding gardens, the plaza Mayor, Calle Toledo, Plaza de la Paja, etc. Strolling through these streets is, without a doubt, to enter a labyrinthine Madrid that transports us back in time without the need to get into the DeLorean from Back to the Future.

Jacinto Benavente Square: from the playwright to the square

Mola! Hostel is in the central Plaza de Jacinto Benavente.. Jacinto Benavente was a 19th century Spanish playwright who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1922. It is curious because when he received the prize, the square where Mola! Hostel did not exist! It wasn't until four years later and after the demolition of some buildings that this space was opened, which also served as the headquarters of the Bank of Spain. Curious? You still haven't seen anything!
