(2,000+ reviews on the web)
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.
