... etc. It burned down and was rebuilt in C18, and now has lovely wrought iron balconies and frescoes. I walked through the popular Plaza del Sol, then back to the Parque de Retiro to have a look at the Palacio de Cristal.

Also, I should mention that those of you who enjoy basketball, the FIBA World Cup final is taking place on September 14th here in Madrid. I'm living one block away from Columbus Square, where in a few days they are going to have a lot of events in preparation for the final, which will most likely be Spain vs the United States!
