Plaza de Santa Ana dates to the early 19th century, although its completion didn’t happen until some seven decades later. Here you’ll find monuments to two of Spain’s great writers, Pedro Calderón de la Barca and Federico García Lorca, as well as many cafes and tapas bars. Take a look toward the east for a view of the Teatro Español, the oldest theatre in Madrid. The plaza itself serves as a popular meeting point, and is excellent for people watching.

In one of them ends is raises the beautiful facade eclectic of the building where currently works the great Hotel Queen Victoria, in the end opposite the theatre Spanish, to them flanks of these two emblematic buildings is rise charming breweries and bars of covers ideal for pass a good time or dinner after attend to any function of the theatre Spanish as Uruguayan I loved also that one of the theaters that carried the name of Margarita Xirgu.

  • A real limit point of Madrid men (especially) and tourists! The morning is a nice, quiet little square, on which stands the white façade at the ME Reina Victoria, but at night it completely covers the tables of restaurants and pubs located on the perimeter, with waiters running from side to side of the road (bringing balanced dishes, trays and platters and risking each time the collision with pedestrians ....)
