Beautiful square with some stunning architecture. Definitely pass by here on your trip to Madrid, there is a lot to see and do close by, like Parc El Retiro and a lot of the museums are here.

Worth visiting to see the different Architectural Styles of Madrid in one place and the CentroCentro is stunning. Free to go in a look around and excellent and varied exhibitions

Really interesting art exhibition on one of the floors when we visited. Unfortunately the viewing terrace was closed due to maintenance but we went onto the rooftop terrace and drunk a cocktail whilst enjoying the views of Madrid.

This plaza has a ton of shops and scenery as well. It has some great little food places as well as the palace.

Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights
frame the neighbourhood of Barrio Salamanca. With
beautiful condominium buildings that make up most
blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and

shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle
Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will
reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of
