This is one of my favorite squares in Madrid. It is a time capsule of days gone by, with buildings on the square dating back to the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries. The buildings are very well preserved. In the center of the square is...More
it was so quaint and small you wouldn’t notice there’s a plaza along the road you’re traversing. it was quite empty when we got there because perhaps it was siesta time?
we’re supposed to do a quick exploration but time constraints prevented us to devote...More
Plaza de la Villa was the medieval heart of Madrid and beautiful historic buildings from the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries still surround the compact square. There is also a statue to Admiral Don Álvaro de Bazán commemorating the 300th anniversary of his death which...More
Plaza De La Villa is a beautiful little historically important square in old Madrid.

Sandwiched between the palace and Plaza Mayor, this relatively unknown square offers a historic look into Madrid's past. It was the political centre of the Spanish capital, with many major events happening here. Another nice photo stop.
As the concierge of your hotel to draw a walking route for you and you will likely stroll through this delightful plaza. Reflecting all the best of Madrid, this corner incorporates history, architecture, beauty and cleanliness into one small plaza.
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
desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
