Plaza de Oriente and Teatro Real
Just a 5 minutes walk from the Puerta del Sol is located Plaza de Oriente, a monumental rectangular square where you can find Teatro Real, Palacio Real and its gardens.
The beauty of these two buildings facing each other, and the peaceful Plaza de Oriente, framed by 20 statues of Spanish kings, just a spot to keep on taking pictures.
As a curiosity, come to the center of the square and see the statue of Felipe IV, considered the first equestrian statue in the world held by only the hind legs of the horse! A masterpiece for its time!
And just opposite Palacio Real, we find Teatro Real, a nineteenth century building that houses the musical programming of Madrid.
If you like opera, ballet and zarzuela, do not forget to buy your ticket to enjoy of one of the many events of the theater during the year.
