Km 0 Spain

Km 0 Spain

In the famous square of Puerta del Sol in Madrid, on the sidewalk of its oldest building, the Post House, you find a granite and brass plate that clearly indicates this MOSTPOINT. You will read on it "Km 0 - Origin of the radial roads". It was installed in 2009 replacing the old mid 20th century plate. In the eighteenth century the thence called coaching roads departed from here, which over time became the radial roads. The accuracy of these measurements is such that current border markers still correspond to them.

We like to clarify that many think that Km 0 correspond to the geographical center of the country but this really has nothing to do with it. They mark the beginning of the national roads in some countries although in others they can be used for the railways.

Did you know that the habit of signaling the "Km 0" comes from the Romans? We owe it to Emperor Augustus (63 BC - 14 AD), who erected a column in the "Miliarium Aureum" (Golden Milestone) departing point of all driveways of his empire. Even today you can see the remains in the Roman Forum. It also derives the famous phrase "All roads lead to Rome".
