This is a quiet and lovely square. There is a lot of history (such as the old town hall building). It is impressive to see how well preserved and nicely maintained the buildings are. Enjoy the architecture, the beauty and the atmosphere!

This little square of cobbled stones has various lovely looking buildings within it and has a little figure statue in a small well kept garden. The square is quaint and very picturesque and worth seeing.

This small square has wonderful architecture. It is very old and it is much different from other squares in Madrid. This is very quiet plaza where you can enjoy good coffee and recharge your energy.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
