"Popular square" Plaza Mayor Tip by Urzu

Plaza Mayor, Madrid: 144 reviews and 258 photos

  Plaza Mayor
by Urzu

In the very center of Madrid you can find the Plaza Mayor (in English it's translated as Main Square) and it's a very popular stop for both toursts and locals. You can simply go and admire the architecture or the statue of Philip III on the horse, but you can also go to sit at a terrace (BEWARE; they are usually quite expensive!), do some shopping, or in the Christmas time go to the Xmas market they place there.

Address: Main square of Madrid
Directions: Metro Sol & Opera

Review Helpfulness: 4 out of 5 stars
