On a morning stroll we walked down an attractive street & found the Puerto de Alcala, similar in a way to the Arc De Triomphe or Brandenberg Gate. We stopped for a coffee nearby & enjoyed the experience.

Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights
frame the neighbourhood of Barrio Salamanca. With
beautiful condominium buildings that make up most
blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and
quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large
shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle
Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will
reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of
