Trip to Spain: Madrid. A part 2
08.07.2014 18:21Continuation the first post about Madrid, a few photo of the capital of Spain.
In Madrid in the centre tremendous indexes of names of streets and the squares.
About a horse. Will pay attention what smart lanterns!
By the way, in other Spanish cities of the tablet too abrupt, in each settlement the style.
From the Square of Spain we going to the Royal Palace. The area before the Royal Palace actually consists of three parts: the Garden of Kabo-Noval, East area (Plaza de Oriente) and the Garden of Lepanto.
On border of East area from both parties there are Spanish kings.
The first king of Spain with a distinctive red heart.
Monument to victims in civil war. For some reason this monument rather was pleasant to me.
Nearby to royal theatre of unreal beauty a street cafe.
The nearest metro station the Opera (nearby to Royal Opera). In the foreground a usual ladder, on back — the lift. The Madrid stations of underground any imperceptible, I did not see any large separate station, as in Petersburg.
Souvenir bench with absolutely unusual form.
Doors and windows. Here and there across Madrid such flights of engineering thought came across. Unknown appointment, likely instead of a jalousie.
On the central streets and squares such «levitating people» here and there come across.
Drinking fountain in small square. In Spain even the tiniest parlor or a joint of streets — at once Plasa (square).
Monument to the yard keeper.
Column with a cross (doubtful art value). Spaniards the people devout enough, the Christian symbolics comes across continually.
Poorly such to inflate? On the Plasa-major (historical «main» square at which the place before the Royal Palace tries to take away laurels) too the people earn as can. Who inflates bubbles, who levitates. Weather sad, we here have returned next day.
Kasa-de-la-Panaderija («Bakery») on the Plasa-major. Picturesquely ornamented building once was bakery of a court yard, paternal and has received the name.
Look what kitchen gardens on walls and on roofs. Often such plantations on terraces, by the way, came across.
We were curtailed and have gone to the El Escorial to look unreal height a cross — the Valley of the Fallen (The Valle de los Caídos), a pantheon the victim in civil war.
Have returned to Madrid in the evening, at station have stumbled about any cheerful little girls, which with pleasure pose.
The house with a turret with interesting Mauritian motives in architecture.

The Sibeles Square and fountain with a chariot. A building with a gold ball on a roof — the Central bank of Spain.
National library of Spain. A huge building in parkway Rikoletos.
