In the heart of Madrid, Plaza de la Independencia offers a remarkable combination of history and humanity: the wide promenade is the perfect place for people watching. Rare are the photographs of the plaza sans the Alcalá Gate, a neo-classical structure inaugurated in 1778. The gate has come a long way since being scarred with shrapnel—having been memorialized in song and appointed as the stage for a 2010 Katy Perry performance. Some argue that the plaza is best observed at night, once illuminated by the buildings’ elegant lights.
