General Information

Puerta de Alcalá is a monument in the capital city of Spain, Madrid. It is a neoclassical arched monument that was built in 1778 to replace a smaller monument that stood on that spot. The monument is a gate and was originally built in the city wall at the then King's orders, to filter who was passing through into the city. In modern times it stands as a monument with roads passing around it.

Getting there

The Puerta de Alcala is situated close to the city centre with the Buen Retiro park close by. The closest subway station is ‘Retiro’ which serves the local park.

Opening Times and Admission

You can get onto the pedestrianised section the monument is on if you want to see it up close; it is advised to be cautious of the busy roads that surround it though.
