  • Has who not heard of the Plaza Mayor in Madrid? Because you have to visit it, of course, is beautiful, very colorful and always full of foreigners. All trades are prepared for this. You can spend a good time and very pleasant.

  • Beautiful square near the main street, very close to plaza Mayor and the Mercado de San Miguel. Worth a visit and explore the narrow streets of the old town of the Madrid de los Austrias. It is also a good starting point to visit the Almudena Cathedral and the Royal Palace.

  • The Plaza de Vila is located in the heart of the historic centre of Madrid, between the Plaza major and the Cathedral. He is smaller than many of the other famous places and is considered one of the oldest in the city. We liked to be here very well. The place exudes a charm, it was also far less crowded and hectic as on many other sites. The historical buildings around the square is very worth a visit and has captivated us all the time.
