Photos of my trip to Madrid (2): Rich architecture

I was in Madrid from February 23 to March 02, 2022. I immortalized hundreds of photos for you, my dear friends and visitors. I will publish them in articles for 6 days. I hope you like them.


Madrid has developed contemporary architecture and modern infrastructure, while preserving historical monuments and architecture well.


Madrid retains medieval architecture in its historic center that was fortified in the Middle Ages (such as the buildings in the Plaza de la Villa). The city also preserves beautiful Renaissance monuments and buildings (such as the Royal Palace).

Madrid’s most interesting architectural works were created during the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. Thus we find in the same space (as in Gran Via street) different styles: neo-Gothic, neo-Plateresque, neo-Baroque, ‘Art-Nouveau, revivalist architecture.

Teatro Español (built in 1735 in Plaza de Santa Ana)
Puerta de Alcalá ( is a neoclassical gate in the Plaza de la Independencia , inaugurated in 1778)
Teatro Real de Madrid (in the place of Queen Isabelle II, inaugurated on November 19, 1850)
La Torre de Madrid en la Plaza de España (=The Tower of Madrid in Plaza de España, Built in the 1950s)
Almudena Cathedral (Built between 1883 and 1993)


Over the past 45 years, Madrid has experienced an urban revolution, in buildings, road networks, parks, museums and shopping centers, not to mention the integration of modern art everywhere (Example the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia).
