Puerta de Alcalá

The Alcala Gate in Madrid’s Independence Square was completed and inaugurated under Charles III in 1778. This beautiful view of the monument was sent to me by Luar, who lives in Madrid. She says that upon the completion of her degree, she would like to leave Madrid to live elsewhere. This is but one of the attractions of Madrid, I cannot imagine that I would want to leave such a wonderful city!
