The Puerta de Alcalá is a Neo-established landmark in the Plaza de la Independencia in Madrid, Spain. It is viewed as the primary present day post-Roman triumphal curve worked in Europe, more seasoned than the comparative landmarks Arc de Triomphe in Paris and Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. It was an entryway of the previous Walls of Philip IV. It remains close to the downtown area and a few meters from the principle access to the Parque del Buen Retiro.
The square is divided by Alcalá Street, in spite of the fact that the road does not cross through the landmark, and it is the cause of the Alfonso XII, Serrano and Olózaga lanes. Its name starts from the old way from Madrid to the close-by town of Alcalá de Henares.
