Plaza de la Paja is another nice plaza in one of Madrid's interesting areas. A few shops in the vicinity, including cafes and restaurants, but not too many trees, just a few for some shade in the summer. Worth stopping by.

This is a nice quiet square with a few restaurants/cafés in the old Centro/Latina quarters. Don't miss the gated small garden on the western side of the Plaza.

Lovely relaxed area which takes you away slightly from the more tourist areas of Madrid. Although there is still tourists there is more of a local vibe about the place. Lots of great restaurants/cafes to try too.

This plaza at the top of the hill, and the most important square in medieval Madrid. Don't miss beautiful Capilla del Obispo built in early XVI century.

Plaza de la Paja is worth a detour as it has a lot of history and is attractive to look at.There's the main San fFancisco church on one side and a small medieval garden, Principe Anglona opposite, and another impressive medieval building between the two.

The plaza got its name from the responsibility of the neighborhood to provide hay for the bishop's palace and the town hall. It's now no longer a center of commerce or a neighborhood for the aristocracy. Gran Plaza has replaced it. But you can sense...More

This plaza is a cute little place, I found it by accident. You have some cafe's and restaurants around, so you can just sit down and chill. There's plenty of trees, so the place is nice and breezy, when it's too hot to be walking...More

I sought out this square as it is apparently one of the oldest in Madrid and the site of an old market at the intersection of several historic roads. It is OK! Quite hard to find and really nothing to it. A nice old church...More

In early morning everything is so wonderful, later at lunch time more people around and in the evening mostly young people are having a romance or eating, drinking.But this is a fantastic place in great surroundings, we always go there, when in Madrid.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
