  • Small park but surrounded my some monumental buildings. I love the statues in this park, they have so much character and emotion.
  • A lot of historical significance with the visit. The audio guide is definitely worth the price. No photos in a lot of the tour though.
  • On one side is the Teatro REal opera house. On the other you will find the Royal Palace and its gardens. The Solemn Changing of the Guard takes place the first Wednesday of every month at 12 noon (exce`t during the summer and when there are official events).
  • The most beautiful square in Madrid surrounded by astonishing classical buildings and classy and stilish cafes a place to enjoy a cocktail in the evening
  • Plaza de Oriente is a square in the historic centre of Madrid, Spain. It is located between some important landmarks in Madrid, on the west is the Royal Palace, on the east is the Royal Theatre, and to the north is the Royal Monastery of the Incarnation. It presents a nice example of the Spanish architecture, and a good place for clicking some really nice pictures. There is a park too, where you can rest.
