"Plaza Mayor" Plaza Mayor Tip by akikonomu

Plaza Mayor, Madrid: 144 reviews and 258 photos


Pretty nice wide space to chill out. Still, it's a little touristy with restaurants skirting the fringe of the plaza catering to visitors. Many philatelic shops concentrated there but the prices were way too inflated for my preference.

The plaza is architecturally interesting as one of it's internal facade is decorated with mosaics forming a picture of a lady (if I don't remember wrongly). A stone's throw away from Puerta del Sol, it is also a quieter place where you could calm yourself after struggling through the thronging crowd of Sol metro.

Address: Main square of Madrid
