This little square of cobbled stones has various lovely looking buildings within it and has a little figure statue in a small well kept garden. The square is quaint and very picturesque and worth seeing.

A nice plaza that is quaint and peaceful with some beautiful architecture around including the old town hall and a modest statue of Alvaro de Bazan, a Spanish Admiral who planned the Armada to invade England. No grass just cobbles.

This plaza is one of the oldest in Madrid. Here you can uncover some of the most remarkable secrets of Madrileño history. It is a great spot to rest after pushing through the swarms in Sol, and also is the sight of the former town...More

collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
