Early morning walking so few people. This is Plaza Mayor. Later in the day it is full of people sitting in outdoor cafes.
The Palacio Real. The King doesn't live here but in a palace out of the city. This palace is used for state affairs.
The Thyssen Bornemisza Museum was almost as impressive as the Prado.
Puerta de Alcala.
Museo Arqueologico. The museum was very well done. I especially enjoyed the Roman and the Christian periods as they related well to the area I just walked through.
The interior of the museum was just completed two years ago.
