This Plaza ought to be a must for every visitor to Madrid. There was a charming, springlike atmosphere when we visited as the trees struggled to come into bloom. Children were playing everywhere while seniors rested chatting or playing cards. In the midst of a...More

This place is wonderful. You can stroll in the park or relax near the statue or fountain. Good for kids as they can run around and climb on the monument.

Situated at the end of Gran Via, Plaza de España is very close to many other attractions such as Royal Palace, temple of Debod. It’s a convenient place with young children due to the water fountain and plenty benches to sit.

Great Plaza at the bottom of Gran Via. From here you can walk to the Royal Palace and the cathedral and on to Calle Mayor. Lovely fountain and tree lined for a relaxing stroll through.

Overrun plaza with tourists and undesirable locals surrounded by bad traffic and multiple metro stops. The plaza is also hemmed in by high rise buildings. We were there and couldn't even get in a picture. Couldn't see the need to stay and wait either. There...More

Arguelles
Just south of the sprawling campus of the Complutense
University of Madrid, Arguelles exudes a fast-paced,
collegiate vibe. The main street, Calle Princesa, is
filled with twenty-somethings rushing between classes
and errands, meeting up with classmates, and grabbing
cheap beers and cheap eats. This is a prime shopping
spot where the major Spanish clothing and department
store chains are less busy than their downtown

Not all metro stations have lifts, I found this out when I arrived at Portal de Toledo. Plaza de Espana does, it is a very busy area, lots of intersting cafes, bars etc nearby.
