  Calle Mayor
by MM212

A wide street cutting through Old Madrid, la Calle Mayor leads from Puerta del Sol to Catedral de la Almudena, passing close to Plaza Mayor and through Plaza de la Villa. Easter processions begin on Calle Mayor before passing through Plaza Mayor. A walk through Calle Mayor with a couple of diversions is a good way to see parts of the old city.
