Behind Plaza Mayor, Plaza De La Villa is in all probability the most beautiful plaza in this most beautiful of city's, its a square I always enjoy visiting on any holiday I take to Madrid.
Plaza De La Villa is historic, the buildings that form this plaza are amazing many constructed in a form of architectural style known as Madrid Baroque ( Barroco Madrileno ) which is a combination of exposed stonework and wrought iron features, the most prominent buildings here are the former Town Hall, a great building whose prominent spires are amazing, this building dates from the 17th century so has some serious history attached to it, another great building is Casa De Los Lujanes were legends have it that French monach Francous I was imprisoned, there also a great statue in honour of Don Alvaro De Bazan,its just an amazing square to check out if you're planning a holiday to Madrid.

At the plaza de la villa you will find old historical buildings. It brings you back to medieval times. There is also a Tower of Lujanes.

Discovered this place randomly after leaving Palacio Real, on my way to Mercado de San Miguel, wasn't expecting, is beautiful! Can't avoid to think how this place was many decades ago. Just wish the garden were full of flowers when I was there.

This is one of the pretties square in Madrid and was once the center of government in the 15th and 16th centuries. The square features some great examples of architecture dating back to the 16th century or thereabout that have been well maintained. The square also has a stature of Alvaro de Bazan, a famous admiral of the Spanish navy under Phillip iii. Worthy of a visit.

This is a lovely little square, not too far from Mayor square.
The city hall building is lovely, as is the small garden and statue in its middle.

Started a Tapas tour in the Plaza de Villa, which is located only a short stroll from the Puerta de Sol & Mercado de San Miguel. Its a beautiful Plaza with wonderful gardens.

Every city has those little publicized hidden wee gems tucked away, and this has to be one of Madrid's. Some of the oldest buildings in Madrid survive here. It's not that big but it's like stepping back in time when you stand in the middle of it, you can just feel the history of the place.

Small intimate and typical plaza just off the Calle Mayor quite highly restored but none the worse for that. Nicely set out with a small garden and a statue of a sixteenth century Spanish Admiral who reputedly never lost a batgtle in fifty years, brilliant for a Spaniard! Well worth a small pause for a cpuple of photos.

In the historic center of Madrid, between Calle del Cordon, Calle del Codo and Calle de Madrid, is the Plaza de la Villa, a monumental complex of medieval Madrid. Now the Plaza de la Villa square seems very small, but it used to be an important center of life in medieval Madrid. Plaza de la Villa de Madrid is one of the most beautiful in Madrid. There are three buildings of great historical and artistic value in the square. This is the house and tower of the Luhanes family from 15th century, the Cisneros house from 16th century and the town hall from 17th century in the baroque style. Really beautiful and romantic wherever you look.
