Plaza de las Cortes is not a large square. We stumbled upon it while walking up the road, from Fuente de Neptuno. It is a 'green' plaza with a handful of trees around and the statue of Cervantes about the middle. Exactly opposite is the...More

We have just returned from Plaza des Cortes and had a drink opposite the clock. The figures went in and out doing their routine about 6 times in half an hour but no bells ringing. Was this a special performance just for us!

The plaza itself is not the biggest or the most famous in Madrid. However, while there, you can see the parliament building and the clock tower where every hour, there is a musical figurine display. It is close by to so many other attractions (Puerto...More

This plaza is not the best in Madrid, but the clock display is fascinating to watch - like a puppet show every hour. So it is worth adding this to your busy itinerary in Madrid.
