  • In Calle Mayor we pass all tourists anyway, every review is unnecessary. Better still, pedestrian routes.

  • As its name indicates, one of the most important streets of Madrid. From the Catedral de la Almudena, a walk to the puerta del Sol, can be admired: the House where lived D. Pedro Calderón de la Barca, the Italian Institute of culture, the ancient Palace of Uceda... And we passed near the Plaza de la Villa and the Plaza Mayor, the city's living history. Essential tour for tourists and lovers of history.

  • A nice street with plenty of variety of shops, including some independent ones and interesting buildings to see. Not the greatest in Madrid but nevertheless interesting.  more »

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
