Find out why all visitors wish to see and to take a photograph of the famed Kilometre 0 in Madrid.

A virtual tour in the historical area of Madrid

As I was walking in Puerta del Sol in Madrid, which is right in the core centre of the capital, two tourists asked me where was the Kilometre 0 and I pointed to the map drawn and is opposite the headquarters of the regional government.
“This is the Kilometre 0!” I exclaimed, pointing at the drawing on the ground.
However, many people will wonder what is this Kilometre 0 and why many people whether they are foreign tourists or from other places in Spain want to see it and to take a shot of it.
Madrid is geographically located in the centre of Spain and it was at this point where all the radial roads to other places of Spain started in the ancient past when Madrid was not the capital it is today, but a small town.
On these days, the starting point to other places in the country is located in other parts of the city, but this Kilometre 0 in the irregular square known as Puerta del Sol is the one that everybody want to see and to take a photograph of it.
If not parting from here to the south or to the north, we can take a street called Carrera de San Gerónimo that will take us to see the Parliament building and ending in a boulevard called Paseo del Prado, we'll be able to reach to some some of the most important museums of the capital city as well as some of the most important in the world.
Then, after having visited any of these museums, we can strolled about in the old and narrow streets of what is known as the District of Letters. It's called like this, because many of the masters of Spanish literature lived in some of these streets. There are also good taverns and restaurants to take a rest after our walk.
We can also stroll in this maze of old streets to reach again to Puerta del Sol and from here we can take another historical route.
If we take the one street called Calle Mayor and walk straight on it, we'll reach to Calle Bailen (*) and we'll see the royal palace, Madrid's Cathedral and the now opera house that in the past was the royal theatre for the king and his Court use and we may stroll and rest in the palace gardens.
If we walk on the viaduct, we'll able to see an stunning view, although, this was a place where many people used to take on their own lives, jumping over to the void and a Mayor, fed up with countless suicides, ordered to install a glass fence along it. One can still see the view, but, obviously, it isn't the same as leaning over the balconies of such a viaduct.
Now, they can't take their own lives jumping over in the viaduct, but they do it on the underground train tracks when the train is about to enter at the platform. I don't know which is worse.
By the deadly viaduct, there's also an attractive and small park, more old taverns and restaurants and strolling through its streets, we'll reach to the ones where there's the popular Rastro flea market on Sundays.
This is it. We've started in the Kilometre 0 in the Puerta del Sol square and we've walked quite a bit to know where the writers and poets of Spanish literature lived and to reach to what is known as Madrid of the Austrias -an old area that was built in the 16th and 17th Centuries during the Monarchy of the Austrian dynasty.

(*) Bailen is a town in the south of Spain and the street was called after a battle in such a town during the war of independence against Napoleon troops.
