This is a nice small picturesque square in the old part of Madrid. Its main feature is the old Town Hall, nice gardens and a statue.

The Plaza de la Villa is a nice square because it has some historic buildings that are found in the square. These buildings are part of the history o Madrid and have very good architecture.

This is a quiet and lovely square. There is a lot of history (such as the old town hall building). It is impressive to see how well preserved and nicely maintained the buildings are. Enjoy the architecture, the beauty and the atmosphere!

This little square of cobbled stones has various lovely looking buildings within it and has a little figure statue in a small well kept garden. The square is quaint and very picturesque and worth seeing.

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
