Alcalá street at night

Click on image to enlarge it!
For today, a really tourist photo from Alcalá. I can't get tired of waking by this street! In the night, all the lighting is gorgeous and make your walking a really great pleasure for the eye.
You can see here The Cibeles fountain (remember it from a previous post?) and in the bottom La puerta de Alcalá, both of them are such an important symbols of the city of Madrid. La Puerta de Alcalá (built in 1778) was used as a gate for the the city walls until 1869. Can you imagine that?

Hoy, una foto turística desde la calle Alcalá. No puedo cansarme de las vistas que ofrece este paseo nocturno. La iluminación es realmente increíble. Podeís ver la Fuente de laCibeles y al fondo la Puerta de Alcalá. Ambos monumentos son símbolos muy importantes para la ciudad de Madrid. La Puerta de Alcalá (construída en 1778) fue usada como una verdadera entrada a la ciduad amurallada hasta 1869 ¿Podeís imaginaros eso?

Hola hermosa vista señorita. Está ud. que se sale. Sabes que iremos, si "Deu vol", a Madrid en el puente de Mayo. Estaremos en el Hotel Mora creo (no se lo digas a nadie no sea que vengan todos los paparazzis). Si ves a uno feo y gordo ese soy yo. No, no soy calvo, ya sea que así sería más fácil.

I hope someday I can visit Madri. Most of the places you show I remember seeing in photos and post-cards my abuela used to show me from her trips. She was the one who inspired me to travel and visit as many wonderful places as I can!

I'm glad to see this; our University used to have a study abroad program in Alcalá, and I didn't know it was so beautiful.

Ruth! I think you're talking about Alcalá de Henares, which is a little (and beautiful indeed) village very next to Madrid (where Mr Cervantes was born).

Thank u guys for stop here!

As I write this note I am imagining that it is nighttime in Madrid right now - and that you might be walking down this beautiful street again. It is a wonderful photo, Dsole.

This beautiful view sounds familiar. It's not that bad to take a «tourist photo»...
