When touring Madrid, you’ll end up at Plaza de Espana Madrid-- whether you want to or not. It lies on one of the city’s main traffic arteries, in close proximity to other major destinations. Fortunately, the monument to Miguel de Cervantes makes your visit worthwhile. Serving as the plaza’s centerpiece, this architect-designed statue of the writer himself, Don Quixote and his true loves, and his sidekick Sancho Panza is impressive. Join other tourists in taking your picture with these literary figures. Plan my trip to Madrid with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • A large square always pending renewal, although I guess not improve much with the changes will be introduced into the parking lot, its Chinese shopping mall, the macrohotel and the redesign of the gardens

  • Beautiful square with a statue of don Quixote and behind a fountain. With a sunny day is to visit.

  • Our whole family went on a self-help tour, from Barcelona to Madrid, and continued to write postcards and send them back to Taiwan for their families, after coming back to Taiwan for a month without receiving a postcard from me, I came back to the idea that in Spain the quality of the mail was not so much printed, As expected, we were all fooled by the local store, all a bunch of fake emails, our postcards ... Never again. It's important to note that I've been to Europe for the first time.

  • This is a place to visit in Madrid. It is a beautiful place, and it has a tribute to the most famous writer of Spain "Miguel Cervantes", it has 2 metal statues of Don Quijote y Sancho Panza, y homage to all the famous characters that Cervantes created. I totally recommend here. Also, if you come on a warmer weather you will be able to see a lot of people hanging around, sitting on the grass and having a great time with theirs friends and family.
  • A popular square at the heart of Madrid. It's an open space with sitting concrete platforms where visitors can relax, beautiful statues here and there, water fountains, trees and flowers. The popular and busy Gran Via street ends here. Tourists take plenty of photos here especially with the fountain and skyscrapers as background.
  • Perfect place to set up a meeting with your friends in Madrid. Serene, cool and beautiful. There is enough shade in case of sun.
  • Nice place in the center of madrid and close to the metro. It is within walking distance to other attractions and Gran via. Has some nice fountains, statues, and just a nice place to sit and relax on a sunny day.
  • Nice place to chill with friends when the weather is nice. Otherwise we use it as a meeting point because it's really great connected with the subway and bus lines.
