Lots of good restaurants offering outdoor dining. Nice crowds enjoying the day whether strolling through, dining, or sitting and watching the activity.

I have frequented this plaza since 1992. It looks like nothing remarkable really though it hosts a large theatre. However it is loaded with restaurants, cervezarias, tapas spots and happy people simply enjoying themselves. It’s more a local spot than Plaza Mayor but a splendid...More

This plaza seems tucked away and not so touristy to me. The building at the "top" of the plaza is beautiful at night with the up-lighting for accent. It is a very lively area at night.

This is a very historic square across the National Theater and filled with light. It has a beautiful statue of the most famous contemporary Spanish Poet: Federico Garcia Lorca (cant miss it!) always people lay flowers every day showing their devotion to poetry.

One side is full of ancient shops and cafes. Beautiful if you like ancient architecture. Lots of coffee shops and places to relax.

Another good square which is not too far from the better known Puerto Del Sol and Plaza Mayor. Again it is lively with tourists with tapas bars, cafes, restaurants and tourist shops. You will also find street entertainers as well.

Huertas
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once
home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de
Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The
neighbourhood is committed to celebrating its rich
heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes
from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to
them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas
receives a fair amount of spillover from the center —

They're all ok... Depends on how you like tapas or if you prefer raciones. I like the tapas at Lateral but the service sucks big time. If you feel like eating tapas somewhere else you can go to other places near Sol, like... More
