[font=Times New Roman][size=4][color=black][size=5][color=darkred][b]Ankara [/b][/color][/size] is a very old city with various Hittite, Phrygian, Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman archaeological sites. The hill which overlooks the city is crowned by the ruins of the old castle, which adds to the picturesqueness of the view, but only a few historic structures surrounding the old citadel have survived to the present day. There are, however, many finely preserved remains of Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine architecture, the most remarkable being the Temple of Augustus and Rome (20 BC) which is also known as the [i]Monumentum Ancyranum[/i].[/color][/size][/font]

It is located in Ankara and was designed by architects Professor Emin Onat and Assistant Professor Ahmet Orhan Arda, whose proposal beat 48 other entries from several countries in a competition held by the Turkish Government in 1941 for a "monumental mausoleum" for Atatürk.[/color][/size][/font]

As the district of Çankaya is itself on a hill, the tower can be spotted from almost anywhere in the city during clear days. The tower's design came from architect Ragıp Buluç and construction lasted from 1987 to 1989. The top section of the tower houses an open terrace and a revolving restaurant named Sevilla, which makes a full 360 degree rotation in one hour. On top of Sevilla is another restaurant, Dome, which is non-revolving and located directly under the cupola. Under the terrace is a café, named UFO. The bottom structures house a shopping mall and several indoor and outdoor restaurants.[/color][/size][/font]

It consists of the old Ottoman Mahmut Paşa bazaar storage building, and the Kurşunlu Han. Because of Atatürk's desire to establish a Hittite museum, the buildings were bought upon the suggestion of Hamit Zübeyir Koşay, who was then Culture Minister, to the National Education Minister, Saffet Arıkan. After the remodelling and repairs were completed (1938–1968), the building was opened to the public as the Ankara Archaeological Museum. It is one of the richest museums in the world.[/color][/size][/font]

[color=red]13-Plaza Mayor de Madrid
主廣場(西班牙語:Plaza Mayor;亦譯馬約爾廣場或大廣場)是西班牙首都馬德里的中心廣場,臨近太陽門廣場,修建於哈布斯堡王朝時期。其形狀為長方形,長129米,寬94米,周圍環繞著三層住宅樓,有237個面臨廣場的陽台。它共有9個入口。主廣場的控制性建築是麵包房之家(Casa de la Panadería),行使市政和文化功能,外牆布滿了壁畫[/color]。

[color=blue]14-Puerta de Alcalá
阿爾卡拉門(Puerta de Alcalá)是西班牙馬德里的一座新古典主義建築,位於獨立廣場。它靠近市中心,距離麗池公園的正門只有數米之遙。阿爾卡拉街(Calle de Alcalá)穿過廣場,但是並不穿過阿爾卡拉門。阿方索十二世街和塞拉諾街呈南北向穿越。其名稱來源於從馬德里到附近城市埃納雷斯堡(Alcalá de Henares)的老路。
18世紀後期,由中世紀城牆環繞的馬德里外觀仍有些單調。大約在1774年,卡洛斯三世任命弗朗切斯科·薩巴蒂尼重建一座新的城門,取代位於附近較小的老城門。1778年正式開幕。

[/color][color=darkorchid]15-Plaza-de-Cibeles
西貝萊斯廣場(西班牙語:Plaza de Cibeles;亦譯為大地女神廣場)是西班牙首都馬德里的一個廣場,周圍是新古典主義建築群、大理石雕塑和噴泉,為馬德里的標誌。
西貝萊斯廣場向北是雷科萊托斯大道(Paseo de Recoletos),向南是普拉多大道(Paseo del Prado),經卡諾瓦斯廣場直到阿托查車站,東西向的阿爾卡拉街穿過廣場,向西到太陽門,向東到獨立廣場的阿爾卡拉門。
西貝萊斯噴泉描繪弗里吉亞生育女神西貝萊斯,坐在兩隻獅子拉著的戰車上。噴泉興建於卡洛斯三世時期,由文圖拉·羅德里格斯設計於1777年到1782年之間。女神和戰車是弗朗西斯科·古鐵雷斯的作品,而獅子是羅伯特·米歇爾的作品。這個噴泉最初毗鄰布埃納維斯塔宮,19世紀後期遷至位於廣場中央。19世紀以前,西貝萊斯噴泉和南面卡諾瓦斯廣場的海神噴泉彼此相望,後來市議會決定,使它們都面向市中心。
西貝萊斯廣場的東南角,是西班牙郵電總局(Correos y Telégrafos)舊總部通信宮(Palacio de Comunicaciones),自2007年起馬德里市長辦公室入駐。廣場的西南角,是西班牙銀行,對面是西班牙軍隊總參謀部。廣場東北角是利納雷斯宮(Palace of Linares),目前設有 Casa de América。

西貝萊斯噴泉是皇家馬德里足球俱樂部慶祝歐洲冠軍聯賽,西甲或西班牙國王杯等大型比賽勝利的地點。

廣場全景馬德里地鐵二號線在西貝萊斯廣場設有西班牙銀行站。

[color=darkorange]16-Almudena Cathedral
阿穆德納聖母主教座堂(西班牙語:Catedral de la Almudena),全名馬德里王家阿穆德納聖母主教座堂(西班牙語:Catedral de Santa María la Real de la Almudena de Madrid),是天主教馬德里總教區的主教座堂,位於西班牙首都馬德里市中心西側,北面隔著兵器廣場(Plaza de la Armería)與王宮相對。該教堂的主保聖人為阿穆德納聖母(Virgen de la Almudena,意為「穀倉聖母」),其亦為馬德里的主保聖人。

1561年時,西班牙將首都從托萊多遷至馬德里,但教會中樞仍然留在托萊多,使得這個新首都一直沒有一座主教座堂,雖然西班牙是一個天主教國家。早在16世紀就有修建此教堂的計畫,並且已決定將該教堂奉獻給阿穆德納聖母,但遲至1879年才正式開工。在西班牙內戰期間,興建工程曾被迫中斷,直到1950年才復工;而該教堂的建築樣式原為哥德復興式,復工後的建築外觀被改為巴洛克風格,以和白色與灰色建築立面的王宮相對應。1993年6月15日,該教堂在時任教宗若望·保祿二世的祝聖下正式啟用,成為歐洲最新啟用的主教座堂。阿穆德納聖母的原始態像,被供奉於該教堂西側的小堂內。

[color=cyan]17-San Nicolas de los Servitas Church, Madrid
Records of a church of this name date to the start of the 13th century, making it one of the oldest in Madrid. The church and its bell-tower may have been part of a former mosque. By the 19th century, this church was poor in resources and parishioners. The parish was joined to that of El Salvador in 1805. For a time, the building was abandoned till the church was ceded in 1825 to the Third Order of Servites. When the nearby church of El Salvador was destroyed in 1842, this church gained its former status as a parish church. Now it belongs to the Servite Order[/color].

[color=yellowgreen]18-Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas
拉斯班塔斯鬥牛場(Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas)是西班牙最著名的鬥牛場。

拉斯班塔斯鬥牛場位於馬德里東部的薩拉曼卡區的金達萊拉區(Guindalera),1929年建成,1931年6月17日開幕. 設有25,000個座位。拉斯班塔斯鬥牛場直徑約65米,是世界上最大的環之一。

拉斯班塔斯鬥牛場的建築師是 Espeliú,建築風格為新摩爾式。其票價取決於距離「舞台」的遠近,以及是在陽光下或陰涼處(後者較昂貴)。鬥牛季節開始於3月,在12月結束。鬥牛賽德日期是在 在聖伊西德羅節(San Isidro Fiesta)的每一天,以及賽季的每個星期日或節假日。鬥牛開始於下午6或7時,持續兩三個小時。[/color]
