This is a hidden gem off of the beaten path in Madrid that is worth the time. A secret door to a secret passageway to buy good tasting cookies from the cloistered nuns. Really cool experience worth doing.

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
