If you are going to the Prado you will pass this place. It is very beautiful but marred by a great deal of traffic unfortunately.

With the Westin hotel on one side, the Ritz on the other, and a beautiful fountain of Neptune in the middle, this is a beautiful square near Madrid's finest museums. Well worth a visit.
