  • Located at one end of the Retiro Park and with the famous Puerta de Alcala at its center, this is another Madrid Landmark. The plaza is really a very busy traffic roundabout and is surrounded by cafes...  more »
  • This triumphal arch is an impressive sight when you are entering Retiro park but the traffic is awful here and so you won't wish to stay long!  more »
  • This is a central and busy roundabout in Madrid. While the roundabout itself is of less interest, the lovely gate in the middle of the roundabout is beautiful and provides several photo-ops.  more »

  • One of the most important squares of the city and also one of the most visited and photographed, always full of animation around the Puerta de Alcalá or taking something on a terrace that are there, love to go at any time of the year and then entering a stroll through El Retiro. Interestingly this square almost nobody knows by name.

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.
