The Calle de Alcala is a very long street and it calls attention because it has the monument of the Puerta de Alcala, which is a beautiful monument because of its architecture.

Calle de Alcala is one of the oldest and most famous streets in Madrid with its mix of architecture and commercial and residencial premises. Most people remember the Alcala Gate in Plaza de Indepencia.

If Madrid were a person, Calle Alcala would surely be a major artery. This is the longest and one of the oldest streets of Madrid. It starts at Puerta del Sol and continues north-east till it merges onto the A-2 motorway. Along the way, it...More

The monument harks back to Madrid’s past, just a pity it’s now located on a roundabout full of traffic. It is also neat one of the entrances for the Retiro Park.

This is Madrid's longest street, with several monuments along it. however, it remains a very busy street and walking is recommended only in specific areas, where other attractions are nearby. Otherwise, it's just walking along a busy street.

Chueca
Chueca is the hip, gay neighbourhood of Madrid where
many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where
the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and
people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main
thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is
Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables
serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture
of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses
