  • Very nice little place. If you have a guide or Wikipedia you the history of this memorable place. It is a place within walking distance between the plaza mayor and the Cathedral.

  • The Plaza De La Villa is close to the tourist route from puerta del sol, plaza mayor and san Miguel. It is quite simple, but beautiful!!!!! Worth knowing and photograph this marvel!

  • You can still to the nearby Plaza Mayor. Because although no auto-da-Fe takes place, but so crowded is he still. The Plaza was created in the time of Emperor Karl I, established the world Empire V in Spain of Carlos de Villa. Fringing's three buildings, including the monument of victorious Admiral, tell stories. The Casa de la Villa is the Town Hall, the current mayor is called Ramses. The building was too small, it had to be the Palacio de Telecomunicaciones at Plaza de Cibeles. The Casa de los Lujanes hosted Francis I as French prisoners. The Casa de Cisneros was one of the legendary Cardinal Cisneros, Grand Inquisitor, and confessor to Isabella I. What kind of a place steeped in history! You can now guess which building you can assign.

  • You suddenly discover this very peaceful space while going down the main street . A rich mix of stone and brick on some of its facades. Just beautiful!
  • Fantastic central place in Madrid just next to Plaza Mayor and the food market San Miguel !
