Preparations for the bleachers for the parade organized by the community of Madrid, in the gate of the Sun, for the celebration of the Dos de Mayo.
This thriving social center of Spain's capital has a semicircular shape, its ancient origins date back to the 15th century and to the reign of Charles I who ordered a gate to be built for better access into the town; soon it became a meeting point and new buildings were built, originally to serve political functions, all around the "" (puerta) that, starting from the 15th century, was the entrance gate to the capital, its name, Spanish for "Gate of the Sun" derives from this city gate decorated with a symbolic sun; over the centuries Madrid grew rapidly, the square was considerably enlarged and new elegant and imposing buildings were erected, the House of the Post Office (Real Casa de Correos, 1768), a work of the architect Jacques Marquet, is still today a splendid example of this.
The square is embellished by monumental fountains and cultural icons that make it popular in Spain as elsewhere in the world such as the aristocratic palace with the giant neon of Tío Pepe's sign sitting above, the clock tower of the House of the Post Office (1866), its clock, known as "Reloj de Puerta del Sol" is the most popular of Spain, the Equestrian statue of King Charles III, just in front of the House of the Post Office, the statue of Mariblanca and the statue of a female bear eating fruits from a strawberry tree (El Oso y El Madroño), this bronze statue, sculptured by Antonio Navarro, symbolizes the aristocracy and the fertile soil of Madrid.
