It's an historical monument. Next to Retiro park. It's not possible to access it's surrounded by traffic, but it's nice to take a pic there.

You will pass by this spot during the day on the way into the park or at night walking heading out to eat. It is quite impressive at any time. Similar to the Arc De Triomphe in Paris

Standing near the city center, and close to the entrance to Retiro Park, Puerta de Alcala is regarded as the first modern post-Roman triumphal arch; older than similar monuments in Berlin and Paris. Great place to take photos during the day, but the monument is pretty impressive to see at night if you have the opportunity.

Nice place to walk by on your way to Retiro Park. The avenue leading up to this square from Puerta del Sol is very pleasant, and I would recommend walking up on it.
