Amazing environment that must be experienced. Lots to see and do, but some of the places are "tourist traps".

A must see when visiting Madrid. Centrally located. Very historic. Many places to eat and drink near the Plaza.

The Plaza Mayor is a very vibrant place full of tourist. The Plaza is lines with restaurants and shops. At night, there are performers in the Plaza to entertain. The entire area around the Plaza has nice little shops and eateries.

We ate here. Good mixed paella. Terrible carbonara and sneaky charges on bread and water but in fairness they took the chips of because of the tragic carbonara. The guys were sound and drink was reasonable

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
