Geocache Description:

Puerta de Alcalá

Puerta de AlcaláPuerta de Alcalá
Miralá........miralá........                                                        ...La Puerta de Alcalá

La Puerta de Alcalá es uno de los monumentos más representativos de Madrid. Se encuentra en el inicio de la calle Alcalá, en la Plaza de la Independencia. La Puerta de Alcalá se inauguró en 1778 de la mano de Francisco Sabatini, arquitecto italiano que trabajó la mayor parte de su vida en España. Anteriormente existió otra Puerta de Alcalá de ladrillo, pero Carlos III ordenó su derribo y reconstrucción.

  • El nombre de la Puerta de Alcalá, al igual que el de la calle con el mismo nombre, vienen por estar situadas en el camino que existía para ir a Alcalá de Henares.
  • La denominación de puerta tampoco es casualidad ya que, en sus orígenes, fue una de las cinco puertas que daban acceso a la Villa de Madrid. En 1889 se convirtió en plaza.
  • Víctor Manuel y Ana Belén la dedicaron una canción en 1986.
English version. The Puerta de Alcala is one of the most representative monuments of Madrid. It is located at the beginning of Alcalá, in Independence Square. Alcala Gate opened in 1778 by Francisco Sabatini, an Italian architect who worked most of his life in Spain. Previously there was another brick Puerta de Alcala, Carlos III ordered its demolition and reconstruction. • The name of the Puerta de Alcala, like the street of the same name, are to be located on the road that was to go to Alcalá de Henares. • The name is no coincidence either door because, in its origins, was one of the five gates that gave access to the city of Madrid. In 1889 he became square. • Victor Manuel and Ana Belén dedicated a song in 1986.
