This is basically an empty space between some buildings with absolutely no touristic attraction. Its mainly used by locals to just sit around or walk their dogs.

Plaza del Carmen is a mixed square near Gran Via with no real outstanding features. New and old buildings and the odd cafe but no reason to visit this square.

This seemed like a place where many locals went. They were there walking their dogs, or having coffee. There's even a movie theater there.

Right in the middle of Madrid - and Spain, in fact. A charming plaza with a lot of folklore going on. Musiciens, dansers, artists and beggars. Close to several good shopping streets. The landmark of Madrid is here. The bear with the strawberry-tree. Charming.

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
