All these attractions were very close to each other so I walked by myself along with the walking tours guided by professionals.
Plaza MayorThe numero uno spot in the capital, is Plaza Mayor. It’s the busiest square in Madrid with close proximity to some of the major sights worth visiting in Madrid.PS: You’ll find a lot cafes and eateries here, to start your day!
The center of all things Madrid - Tapas, Sangria, Jamon!
Plaza Mayor is cobblestone-lined section is literally squared away, and its remote feeling is like stepping back into a different era. Buildings with beautiful balconies line this square and its different arches open out different streets. Yet, Plaza Mayor has an interesting history. Trials by the Spanish Inquisition took place here, but the location also has been a setting for bull fighting. Nowadays, there are cafes, restaurants and shops here.
