  Plaza de España
by Carmela71

In some of my trips I used to stay at Gran Via hotels, so this was a meeting point, when I used to come and visit my ex bf in my late teens (lots of memories)

I always loved the statue of Don Quijote and Sancho Panza, maybe because when I was younger I was as naive as Don Quijote, and with the time I got (or at least I try lol) to be sensible as Sancho Panza.... (even if my mother will never believe that lol)

Beware here of pickpockets... I was shock on my last visit, instead of 2 eyes they seemed to have 20 and watch all tourist cameras and bags... and I even had someone so close to me trying to steal, that i had to avoid him...

Ok, now we have been walking enough, time to get a metro to the following point (here would be Banco Espa?a metro station, to visit Cibeles, and all that area) or maybe not, maybe we can walk all Gran Via till Plaza Callao, and check some shops lol hehehehe
