As with most plaza's in Madrid these are a centre of social life. People congregate here after work and over weekends. Plaza del Sol is particularly vibrant. We spent some time here of the weekend and on a Monday. It gets REALLY busy! Nice to...More

Personally I don’t see a lot to attract me to Plaza del Sol however it is clearly popular. I would suggest it is most popular with those looking to save a little money and bring their own food and drink without having to pay for...More

Sit and relax. Non touristic spot and a great place if you want to get mixed up with the locals. Mostly crowded during the night.

This is a small square in the Gracia are and there is essentially nothing here but a few restaurants around the square. There are better places in Gracia.

This place is very cosy. If you want to escape the crowded city just for beer or cocktail, this place is perfect. In the night lot of people are around this place sitting down and preparing for the night.

Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to
