Very busy square in Madrid. Looking around you can see several beautiful old buildings. Overall, it is very crowded so it is hard to enjoy the area.

Plaza de Canalejas is next to the busy main street and crowds are continually walking through and it doesn't feel like a square as such, more like part of the strret.

The Plaza de Canalejas is located in downtown Madrid and is a very busy plaza. It is noteworthy because it has some good architecture from the past, such as the old Banco Hispano Americano, Casa de Allende and Edificio Meneses.
