Very enjoyable plaza to stop for a meal or drinks. Definitely worth a visit to enjoy the plaza and scene.

Plaza de Santa Ana is an unusual, dress-down spot...As an ideal place for families—adjacent to cool plazas for adults, I’d give it a 4.5/5. It’s probably the best place for families to unwind and have a drink or meal, while watching their youngsters, far enough...More

A charming square which, in my opinion, should be visited late afternoon or in the evening. The statue of Fedrico Garcia Lorca stands there too! Many tabernas, bars, etc, are around this plaza!!

Nice place to have dinner as there are restaurants all around. Plus it is one of the tapa center in Madrid. Just ask around. Cerveceria Alemana is close by one of the famous old Madrid haunts. Hemingway and all that

Nice plaza in centro Madrid. Surrounded by many restaurants and many of them has good rating. Also different type of food. Recommended

This is not one of the prettiest squares. There are some nice buildings but I would choose to go elsewhere to eat.

Loads to see and lots of choices to pick from we really enjoyed having a beer and watching the world go by. Highly recommend many of the bars but there's a few that only serve Heineken so check la carte first!

Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once
home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de
Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The
neighbourhood is committed to celebrating its rich
heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes
from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to
them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas
receives a fair amount of spillover from the center —

They're all ok... Depends on how you like tapas or if you prefer raciones. I like the tapas at Lateral but the service sucks big time. If you feel like eating tapas somewhere else you can go to other places near Sol, like... More
