Here’s some more inspiration to get to Spain, as if I already needed that. 😉
The square looks unreal from above, but it is very real indeed as “a major public space in the heart of Madrid.” And the square is much bigger than it looks here, with 237 residential balconies facing inwards.
It features a central castle with seven towers and is connected through the city by elevated walkways. The castle is flanked by two large public parks, both connected by a greenway and a central commercial district.
I have a lot more history and background to share about this famed town, but I will leave it to these basic facts for now. 😉
