  • Located in the center of Plaza Mayor, this statue depicts Felipe III also called Philip the pious, who ruled from the end of 1500 until 1621, the year of his death, out of Spain and Portugal. Famous for the expulsion of the Moriscos of 1609, Muslim converts to Christianity but who had retained many Islamic practices. This bronze statue was sculpted by Giambologna and, at his death, completed by Pietro Tacca, always at his school. The latter also has a bronze statue in the Plaza de Oriente If this review did you like, you can read my other reviews of Madrid (and others) and I'm glad a click on: is it useful? Thanks:)

  • Very artistic plaza, lots of vendors and performers.
  • If you are in Madrid you can not go and not see this place. Although there is not so many to see except buildings the statue, the place has its own magic atmosphere, some bars and a lot of street artists.
  • Omg
  • Plaza Mayor, one of the best places to see in Madrid, Gotta love Espana

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.
