    Sun Gate Square is one of Madrid's famous landmarks. There are many famous buildings and sculptures around the square, as well as food and leisure, shopping places, which can not be ignored. The old post building was built by French architect Jacques Marquet from 1766 to 1768, and the bell tower on the roof was built in 1867. Every New Year's Eve, Madrid people gather here, at 12 o'clock in the middle of the night, eat 12 grapes symbolizing good luck to celebrate the arrival of the New Year. On the square road in front of the building, there is a 1-foot-diameter ring with a map of the Iberian Peninsula in the center marked with the words "zero kilometers". Spain uses "zero kilometres" as its starting point, from which milestones of national highways are calculated. Sun Gate Square is also the starting point of Madrid's door number. The "Bear and Raspberry Statue" is located in the eastern part of Solar Gate Square, which replaces the former relics of Solar Gate and is now Madrid's most popular landmark. There is also a statue of Carlos III in the square. The shell-like avant-garde shape of the Sun Gate subway station on the square is quite eye-catching among the traditional classical buildings in the square, and the arched glass buildings shine in the sunshine (the last picture).

    Yangmen Square is named after the city gate here in the 15th century because it is decorated with solar patterns and serves as Madrid's east gate facing the direction of the sun rising every day. In 1570, the Sun Gate was demolished, but the place name was preserved. Therefore, the Sun Gate Square is a semi-circular symbol of the rising sun, surrounded by buildings around ten streets with the square as the center radiating outward, like the sunshine. The two-eyed fountains in the square coincide with Madrid's name as a "water-rich place". To the east of the square is a statue of a brown bear and a bayberry tree, which was completed in 1967. It represents the Madrid logo and is part of the Madrid emblem. Fog and Princess took N photos here. The reason is that fog thinks that there is too much difference between the princess and the princess. It is necessary to have a picture with the same face value, that is, fog is more beautiful. As a result, a group of Spanish students had been waiting for a long time. A beautiful boy came to negotiate with them. He was greedy for the beauty of others. He took the opportunity to take several pictures. Finally, he got the meaning of others and let us go.

    Every city in Spain has countless squares, Solar Gate Square, the heart of Madrid. In fact, many important blocks are as crowded as Wangfujing and Xidan in our big Beijing. They are very busy and interesting, because there are many street performers and performance artists performing here. It's also a good choice to have a sunshine here after dinner and watch street performers. Fig. 6 The figure of bear and strawberry tree is the emblem of Madrid, which is the emblem of Madrid Athletic Football Club, one of the two strongest players in Madrid. This statue is very conspicuous and lovely in Sun Gate Square.

It is a historic square and a place that reflects the local conditions and customs of Madrid. The Security Bureau Building is a prominent building in the square. It is a palace-style building in the late 18th century with neoclassical style. After its completion, it served as the central post office, army headquarters and Political Department of Madrid. There are many shopping places nearby. There are many souvenir shops, many hotels and dormitories. They can be bought and returned to the dormitory to cook for themselves. The transportation is very convenient. You can go anywhere in Madrid by subway. That is to say, you should pay attention to a lot of thieves. Beautiful thieves are too rampant. Even black people rob things. Lime electric scooters can be seen everywhere in the street. It's a little expensive, pay attention to the cost, and there are many mobikes in Madrid with China.

    Sun Gate Square is the city gate of Madrid's ancient city wall. On the square stands the riding statue of the King of Spain. There are many hundred-year-old shops and modern shops around the square. If you want to know if the shop has a hundred-year-old history, you should find out whether the ground of the gate has a bronze nameplate. Because of its innate sense of history, the square has multiple missions: zero kilometers in Spain, the countdown to the New Year, the intersection of modern fashion and history in the city.... Solar Gate Square is worth visiting!
