Tio Pepe Neon Sign – Puerta Del Sol

Tio Pepe Neon Sign – Puerta Del Sol

The Tio Pepe Neon sign, that crowned the building at number 1 of the Puerta del Sol in Madrid since 1936, has been taken away on April 2011, to allow the restoration of the building.

There was a project to build a new Apple Store in that building, which has opened to the public on June 14, 2014.

I feel lucky to get the picture above, since when I took it, I didn’t now it would be taken away a few days later.

In the photo below, we can see the sign, in the new location, at the beginning of Preciados Street, that goes from Puerta del Sol, where we are now, to Plaza Callao 350 meters away.
