"Explore PLAZA MAYOR!" Plaza Mayor Tip by Krystynn

Plaza Mayor, Madrid: 15 reviews and 15 photos

  Plaza Mayor (pronounced as "Pla-thar Mar-yor")

Favorite thing: Conveniently located in downtown Madrid, this 17th century wide, open square/ courtyard is a common meeting place for tourists and the locals alike. It was once a place of great importance where public executions, great festivals and the crowning of the king took place.

Today, this whole area is filled with lovely tapa bars and souvenir shops.

If you wish to people-watch, the Plaza Mayor is also a good place to conduct your 'hobby'. ;-)

Address: Main square of Madrid

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
