Beautiful square surrounded by spectacular old building.
Surrounding area must have more bars and restaurants than most entire countries.
Like most of Madrid can be crazy busy till the early hours of the morning.
Do not miss.
Plaza De Canalejas is a wonderful square that we passed through as we were wandering around this part of town.
Although in my opinion this plaza looks more like a wide boulevard than a square but that said it's still a fantastic area.
I would come here to visit the beautiful La Violeta which is a 100 year old sweetshop specialising in violet flavour confectionery. It has a lovely original wooden shopfront and there are other picturesque premises like this here. The problem is the area is very...More

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
desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
