#About the Statue of Don Quixote, his Servant Sancho Pancho and the Author Who Wrote about Them

Plaza de Espana, is a large and green square, located at the end of Gran Via - the main shopping avenue in Madrid. In the square there is a large fountain and lots of pretty greenery. It is the perfect place if you are looking for a little rest from the urban walking, and still want to be in a vibrant urban environment.

At the center of the square is a monument in memory of the national author Miguel de Cervantes, who wrote the novel about Don Quixote. Many have made him into a national and cultural hero, because of his ability to present words of help and frustration of the Spanish nation, that come into action by Don Quixote's battles for the windmills. The statue presents Cervantes himself, as he looks onto the two characters: two bronze statues places under him, one of Don Quixote, and the other of his trusted servant, Sancho Pancho.

It is not for nothing that this whole area filled up with skyscrapers, this is one of the busiest intersections in Madrid. Two of the most prominent skyscrapers at in Plaza de Espana are Edificio Espana (built in 1947, and was built with modern elements and new buildings styles, along with traditional Spanish style), and not far is the Torre de Madrid, which for years has been the tallest building in Madrid.

#About Madrid's Ancient City Hall Building

The City Hall Building (Casa de la Villa) is located in one of the most beautiful squares in the city - La Plaza de la Villa. In this square, back in the 14th century, city officials used to come here and speak about the city's problems, in a church that no longer exists today.

When Madrid became the capital of the Spanish Kingdom, architect Gomez de la Mora was given the task of designing a building that will fit the needs of the municipality, and will show the standing of the new capital.

In the second half of the 18th century a balcony was added to the building, where from the kings of Spain watched religious parades. As well as bein g the City Hall building, the building was also used as a prison. This is when separate entrances were planned for the building, for the different uses.

At the start of the 20th century, when the building became too small for the management of the city activities in Madrid, the municipality bought the Casa de Cisneros next door. Activities were expanded into the additional building. This palace look-alike, built in the 17th century, was planned in the Plateresco style, also called Spanish Renaissance style, a Spanish spin-off of the Italian Renaissance style.



#Tips

Visiting the City Hall is possible only on Mondays at 5:00 pm, as a part of a free tour.

San Lorenzo de El Escorial
#About the Palace that Financially Destroyed Spain

San Lorenzo de El Escorial is a Royal Palace and Royal Monastery of San Lorenzo. This is a massive building built by Philip II, after Spain's victory on August 10, 1557, in the Battle San Quintín. The same victory happened on the day of Saint Lorenzo, over the French forces that were at war with Spain.

There are 24 inner courtyards, and 16 kilometers of corridors, the huge palace, about 50 kilometers from the city of Madrid, is one of the largest buildings in the world. Building this building was very expensive and very fast. Actually, it was completed within 21 years, while spending enough money on construction to quicken the financial fall of the kingdom.

Thanks to the fast construction, the palace-monastery was completed fast. This leads to the impressive stylistic uniformity of the huge structure. Simply, not enough time passed during construction for styles to change.

The unique thing about this place is the breath-stopping combination between the wide and fancy palace gardens, and the natural beauty of the grounds. The massive San Lorenzo de El Escorial was built on the southern foothills of the Sierra de Guadarrama, and the view set from here is over the magnificent mountains and the landscape around them.


#Architecture of the Palace

At 1,065 meters above sea level, the palace-monastery where you are located, the fruit of the labor of architect Juan de Herrera, is considered one of the most important buildings in Spain, and has been an inspiration for many palace designs in the Spanish kingdom.

This is a huge complex; there is a palace and a monastery, and a shared library, and an impressive burial building where the kings of Spain are buried. The severe building, built in the Renaissance period, in the mid 16th century, began an important architectural precedent in Spain and has since influenced many palaces in the Spanish kingdom.

The design of the monastery built here in the severe, unkempt, almost cold style of the architect Juan de Herrera, is in sharp contrast to the monstrous and glamorous style that was popular at the height of the Renaissance, and at the time it was built.



#What Can Be Seen Here?

A tour around San Lorenzo de El Escorial takes about half a day. In the treasure museum in the palace there is an impressive collection of art pieces, a royal basilica, and reconstructions of apartments of the royal family.

More in the palace, you can visit the Royal Pantheon, where many of Spain's kings are buried, since Carlos I, the first king buried here. The fancy and impressive Pantheon was built in the 17th century.

Another point of interest is the El Escorial Library. This is a library that contains ancient texts, many rare writings. Actually, this library has one of the largest collections in the world of ancient handwritten texts. The collection includes over 5,000 handwritten texts in ancient languages, including Greek, Latin, Arabic, and even Hebrew.

Malasaña
#About the Renewing Neighborhood in Madrid

Once, the Malasana neighborhood (Barrio de Malasaña) at the center of the Plaza 2 de Mayo square, was one of the older and crumbling places of Madrid. Malasana was already set to be destroyed. Young enthusiasts, together with the residents of the neighborhood, opposed the destruction and stopped it completely. In a wonderful civil movement, the neighborhood became one of the trendiest places in Madrid, to a popular residential area, and an area for outings for Madrid's young people.

This is called urban renewal, and this is what turned this tired and gloomy place to a hipster fortress and a real entertainment area, filled with pleasant restaurants and cafes, friendly to locals and tourists, optimistic and full of life.

Today, this is one of the most bohemian quarters in the city. The quarter is known for its cool rock and funk clubs. Each evening the Malasana clubs bring in many young people, that come in groups to the live performances and the parties.

The magical Malasana neighborhood, in north Madrid, is behind the luxury mall Gran Via, the must eat food temple, cultural and shopping centers of Madrid.

Many in Madrid call Malasana el Barrio de Universidad, for the student atmosphere here. Another name that sticks around is Chueca-Malasana, named for the nearby Chueca neighborhood. This is a neighborhood for the LGBTQ community of Madrid, with a liberal atmosphere, young and open. Many tend to see both of them as one urban place, the two strongest entertainment quarters in the Spanish capital.


#The Hours of Malasana

During the passing hours, Malasana goes through different stages and receives a different face.

Throughout the day you can walk along with the elders of the neighborhood, drink espresso in a designed cafe, and enjoy a good meal in restaraunt with a Spanish feel.

In the evenings you can sit at a local bar, or go to a cool alternative rock club, one of the many scattered around.

In the night hours Malasana changes its face. The club atmosphere in the night clubs and the bars become more vibrant, jumpy, and fun. You can see all the big names in the city of Madrid, beautiful, musicians and artists, everyone dancing, drinking, and having a good time.


#Tips

There is no specific place here. Just come to the neighborhood and wander around. You will discover over and over again hip places, fun things, people, and entertainments. Enjoy!

This begins with the hanging gardens that cover the walls that have been expertly planted here. The verticle garden here is in touch with Royal Botanical Gardens of Madrid, located in El Retiro Park nearby.

To combine this verticle garden with the building, the best architects were brought to design the building, the well-known Swedish architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron. French botanist Patrick Blank, who is also an expert in these gardens, was also brought to help.

The building, which in the past was used as a powerhouse, the architects added more floors that were painted red. With the additional space, the architects created a modern and colorful space, interesting and special, which corresponds to and does not deny the materials and usability of the original structure and also preserves green and respectful awareness of the environment, while creating a contrast between its part and the time.



#Tips

The entrance to the gallery is totally free.
