Puerta del Sol – The Bear And The Strawberry Tree

Puerta del Sol – The Bear And The Strawberry Tree

From Callao, point (A) in the map above, we walk 200 Mts. on Preciados street towards Puerta del Sol. The Preciados St. with all its shops, is one of the busiest streets of Madrid.

Once we arrive to Sol, if we walk towards Alcala street, we find the statue of the bear and the strawberry tree, which appears in the photo. The statue of the bear and the strawberry tree is a sculpture of the second half of the twentieth century, representing the heraldic arms of the town, and original symbol of the city.

It is installed on the eastern side of the Puerta del Sol, between Calle de Alcalá and Carrera de San Jerónimo, in the historic center of Madrid.

Also in Puerta del Sol, we will find a crowded meeting point of the city, where there is always something new to see.

Of the most important things to see in Sol, is the Km. 0 plate on the sidewalk, and the neon sign of Tio Pepe.  This sign was moved from the original site, where we have the building of the Apple Store, between Alcalá street and Carrera de San Jeronimo.
