Puerta del Sol Reviews
O local em si é bem mais do mesmo, apenas uma praça sem nada mais e com o monumento do urso pequeno e sem atrativos. Madri tem lugares muito melhores more »The place itself is much more of the same, just a square with nothing more and with the monument of the bear small and unattractive. Madrid has much better places
Really enjoyed visiting this area several times for everything from food, gifts to finding a supermarket more »
