Madrid, Spain 2015.
The Royal Palace (Palacio Real in Spanish) is not the official residence of his Majesty the King of Spain, but rather where state ceremonies,
official banquets and other state functions take place. The origin of the palace dates back to the ninth century when the Muslim kingdom of
Toledo built a defense that was later used by the kings of Castile, who, during the 16th century, built the former Alcázar castle.

Museo Del Prado is one of the world's premier art galleries. The more than 7000 paintings held in the Museo del Prado’s collection (although only around 1500 are currently on display)
are like a window onto the historical vagaries of the Spanish soul, at once grand and imperious in the royal paintings of Velázquez, darkly tumultuous in Las pinturas
negras (The Black Paintings) of Goya, and outward looking with sophisticated works of art from all across Europe.
We met a huge mass rally in front of Prado, and the rally was for woman rights in Spain.
Plaza de España (Spanish for Square of Spain) is a large square, and popular tourist destination, located in central Madrid, Spain.
Don't miss the famous Don Quixote and Sancho statues, located close to the Metro stop in Plaza de Espana.
In the middle of the busy Plaza de la Independencia stands one of Madrid's best known landmarks: the Puerta de Alcalá or Alcala Gate.
The monumental Cibeles Fountain has become a Madrid icon. Located in the heart of the city, it shows Cybele, the Greek goddess of fertility and nature holding a sceptre and a key
while being pulled by two lions on a chariot. The pull of the wild lions symbolize the power of nature or of the goddess.
