Calle de Alcala is one of the oldest in Madrid. Its birth, and subsequent elongation, corresponds with the growth of Madrid, following the times.
Its origin as a street begun after building Puerta del Sol, just a few meters from where this photo was taken, thus this are the buildings having the low numbering of the street.
This photo shows the East from Puerta del Sol. To the right, you have the even numbers, and the odd numbers at left. We are more or less in front of number 4 of Alcalá, on this picture.Tags:alcala, travel, walking tours
