A busy plaza in the middle of the city. Lots of people, specially young people gathering around the cinema houses. Not much to see.

Busy and concrete, with 20th century buildings around. Compared to other plaza's less interesting but central.

This was one of the busiest squares we went through during our stay in Madrid. Lots of street performers, but most of all tourists. So, it's fun to spend a few minutes if you're passing by, but I wouldn't change my way to see it.

Located on Gran Via with a metro and plenty of shopping options in the square itself, Plaza del Callao is a prominent spot in the heart of Madrid!

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
