downtown MADrid...


Calle Preciados (Preciados Street) is one of the more emblematic and centric streets of Madrid, connecting Callao square with Sol square (where 0km is). In 2004 it ranked 12th in world’s expensive streets. In summer time it gets covered with shading triangles, to protect us from the 40ºC sun.

A pretty street scene, wonderful shadows on the sidewalk cast by the shading triangles.

What a great idea for the shoppers. Don't want them to get hot and abandon their shopping spree! I like the colors and your perspective on this one.

It is a beautiful street. No vehicles travel on it?
