The Plaza Mayor is large and did not feel very inviting. We visited early in the morning and there really wasn't much going on at that time of day. We only spent a very short time looking at the colorful buildings and the Town Hall....More

Walked by in daytime. The square is undergoing renovation, which takes away a large part of the charm. Didn't go back in the night.

Its undergoing some refurbishment at the moment but this is a beautiful place to wander around at any time during the day or evening. It is ringed by restaurants and shops and fills with people during the day but especially in the evenings.

Had lunch there for the experience but you can do better price wise on the side street. Remember to first ask to see “el menu del dia” “the menus do the day”. The food is usually delicious and quite a deal.

Pretty much like any other Plaza Major although this one was under renovation when we walked through. A square with shops around the outside just like most Spanish squares. Nothing special about it except the arch through which you might enter or leave.

With wine or a beer enjoy your tapas from several bars facing the side of the cathedral. See the sea and diversity of the human species mixing with locals. An extremely alive place any time of the year

Very close to the cathedral and all the sites in the old town. Lots of people watching can be done here as well as enjoying a coffee or a drink and a meal.

The iconic square has been spoilt by the activity of a facelift but the abomination that stands out the worst are the lift shafts down to a car park.

When you are heading towards the city of Burgos, you should have to know that there are two places into the historical centre you will have to visit: namely the Gothic Cathedral and of course the colourful Plaza Mayor. This location was formerly known as...More

Do you mean Mercado San Miguel where people go for tapas. If so, it's across the street from the Plaza Mayor. I'm unfamiliar with a central market in Madrid.
