  • Big square with the imposing puerta de Alcalá in the heart, urbanized by Angel Fernández de los Ríos in the style of the Parisian squares, the old granary buildings attached to the puerta de Alcalá were demolished in 1869, and was annexed to this plaza a removal area forming a great set.

  • Beautiful square, itself would be nothing if it is not through the Puerta de Alcalá and the area bordering the Retiro. It is also a hub of key communications in circulation.

  • 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.
