From a botanical perspective, the recreation area includes some very important backyards: the Jardín de Vivaces, the Jardines de Cecilio Rodríguez (traditional gardens of any Andalusian style), the Jardines del Arquitecto Herrero Palacios, the Rose Garden, and the Parterre Francés with the oldest tree in Madrid, a bald cypress that is thought to be 400 years of age.

Alcala GateThe gate was built by Sabatini in 1778 within the town adornment restorations advertised by Charles III. It really is manufactured from granite and it is a great exemplory case of proportion, tranquility, and beauty. The Ruler commissioned the task to Sabatini to be able to commemorate his appearance at the administrative centre in 1759. The gate was located at the access of the town, next to the Alcal? de Henares highway, that it received its name.
Sabatini designed a framework comprising five arches, three of these half-point and another two, located at the ends, by means of an architrave. The opportunities are flanked by ten columns with modern Ionic capitals, finishing in cornices crowned by an attic, and they’re set up on the bottom part at both factors of the monument. Privately facing Cibeles, you can view that the columns, aside from those that beautify the central arch, have been substituted by pilasters.
Robert de Michel created the ornaments that enhance the Gate. They focus on the embossed cornucopias positioned in the starting friezes on the ends and the lion minds of the three central opportunities. Finally, the jacket of royal hands is recognized by a Popularity and a Genius, created by Francisco Guti?rrez. At both edges of the monument and over the attic, an inscription reads “Rege Carlo III/ Anno/MDCCLXXVIII”
Puerta del SolCentral and bustling, Puerta del Sol is one of Madrid’s most widely known squares. Several active historical pavements, such as Calle Mayor, Calle Arenal, Calle Alcal? and Calle Preciados, converge here and it includes many of the city’s most widely known landmarks.
Among these is the famous clock at Casa de Correos, the head office of the local government of This town. On 31December every year thousands gather before the clock and follow the custom of eating twelve grapes as it attacks twelve, in a televised wedding ceremony viewed by an incredible number of Spaniards.
In the same place, opposite the Casa de Correos doorway, is the plaque marking Kilometre No, the point that the country’s radial streets are assessed and alongside which many Spanish holidaymakers have their photographs used every day. The Puerta del Sol also includes the statue of the Keep and the Strawberry Tree, precious by local people and a favorite meeting point. A similar image looks on the city’s layer of arms.
On the contrary area, at the access to Calle Arenal, is the “Mariblanca” statue of Venus, a imitation of the seventeenth hundred years original which used to adorn a fountain located here, now performed at the Casa de la Villa. Very near the statue, at the heart of the square, is the equestrian statue of Charles III, the ruler who modernised This town in the eighteenth hundred years with some advancements to the city’s system.
