Plaza del Campillo del Mundo Nuevo
From the Rieger galleries, I turned onto Mira el Sol, which literally translates to " look at the sun." The street is really very bright and elegant.
I finished my walk through the market of El Rastro at the square of Campillo del Mundo Nuevo (on the map).
The main attraction of the square is the monument dedicated to the charity and protection of orphans and widows (La protección de la orfandad y la viudez) by the Austrian sculptor Victor Tilgner.
The police Department building.
Usually on Sundays there are market stalls and sheds, but today is a holiday, the day of Madrid, so in the Park you can bask in the sun in the may sun (may in Madrid is generally cold), the inhabitants of the surrounding neighborhoods.
And parents walk their offspring.
In Spanish cities, there are a huge number of playgrounds that are never empty, which raises doubts about the thesis of a dying Europe.
