The area that surrounds Puerta del Sol is the biggest attraction for tourists coming to visit Madrid and the heart of its city centre. It's also one of the biggest areas for shopping, and its bars and terraces serve up snacks, beers and other refreshments non-stop. And it's home to the famous statue of 'El Oso y el Madroño' (The Bear and the Strawberry Tree), the symbol of Spain's capital city.
