  • The very center of the city - Madrid

This is the very center of Madrid, and it's usually packed with people. Because of this it is very common to find lots of people (usually inmigrants) trying to sale pirate DVDs and CDs, rip off accessories and things like that. Also there are many beggars around that area. Still don't let this get in the way of visiting the square. There you can find the famous Clock that all of Spain is watching to follow the countdown to the New Year. You will also find plenty of Souvenir shops in the area if you wish to get something from the city.

Address: The "center" of Madrid
