Additional Location Information
The barrio of Sol lies at the very centre of Madrid's Centro district, so naturally there are many sites no visitor can miss, starting with the iconic Puerta del Sol square. In fact, the spectacular plaza-called "Gate of the Sun" in Spanish-marks the perfect starting point for any Madrid explorer. Extending outwards, no visitor will be able to resist taking in everything the sleepless neighbourhood has to offer.
The barrio of Sol itself is encapsulated by the city's most prominent streets and squares, including the famed Gran Vía and the pedestrianised Calle de Preciados, two of Madrid's busiest shopping streets. An impressive complex of the Spanish department store chain El Corte Inglés kicks off Preciados with a tourist-friendly shopping atmosphere. Other can't-miss stops include the Royal Palace of Madrid and the Teatro Real, the royal opera house.
Aside from its extraordinary sites, Sol features a variety of authentic Spanish restaurants, cafés and bars, many located in or near Plaza Mayor, the stunning historical city centre stemming from the 16th century. Street performers, from flamenco dancers to trumpet players to performance artists, entertain Madrilenians and visitors alike throughout the barrio's liveliest areas, sometimes even attracting audiences of hundreds.
A perfect destination for those visitors wanting to take it all in, Sol bustles with activity from dawn to dusk and beyond. After taking in the barrio's rich culture and history, a night out hopping from one Sol hotspot to another is the choice leisure activity for most visitors-even at night, the bright energy of the city centre never dwindles. The very centre of Madrid, it's no wonder its name means "sun" in Spanish!
Near to Sol is the lively Santa Ana square and Huertas streets, and further south is the bohemian area of Lavapies.
The barrio of Sol is accessible from anywhere in Centro, but Sol metro station (Lines 1, 2 and 3) will leave you in the heart of it all-Puerta del Sol plaza.
