#16 of 265 in Sightseeing in Madrid
Landmark Tourist Spot
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. A visit to Plaza de Santa Ana represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Madrid travel itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

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.
