Plaza Maior may be stunning and the nearby Mercado de San Miguel an exhilarating treat, but just as pleasant, if more casual, is the Plaza de Santa Ana, once the centre of Madrid’s literary life. Open-air tapas bars line up, one by one, all in...More

Though Plaza Maior gets all the attention because it's truly breathtaking, Plaza Santa Ana has more of a local feel and is interesting due to the many outdoor restaurants around the plaza. Well located and easy to build into any walk around town.

This plaza seemed to be very local focused. There were plenty of tapas bars and cervecerias with a Flamenco club on one the corners. Well worth a visit.

Even though the square is nice because of the buildings surrounding it (including a theater and an old hotel), what makes it more attractive are the bars around it. Several places where you can sit down for a cold drink or have a snack. Even...More

Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once
home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de
Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The
neighborhood is committed to celebrating its rich
heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes
from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to
them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas
receives a fair amount of spillover from the center —
