We had a room overlooking the plaza and it was almost constantly filled with tourists as well as regulars. Lots of vendors selling "souvenirs" as well as performing mariachi bands and street performers. No place to eat on the plaza but a good place to...More

This is it! Touristy, crowded, and commercialized, it's still the one must-see central point in Madrid that can't be missed. There's always something going on at Sol! We saw acrobats, cartoons (Super Mario posing for pictures and selfies) and the Portuguese football team and their...More

One of the sights of Madid - very busy - watch out for pickpocketing. Currently there some interesting street performers who act like statues.

This is where the action is. People walking around 24/7. Load, fun, great way to see the culture of Madrid. Worth spending some time just people watching.

This plaza was next to our Hotel. Lots of life - from magicians, to skaters, to a protest, singers - so much fun. Be sure to spend an evening here.

A great place to people watch, full of spaniards and some street acts felt very safe in this area. Plenty of restaurants around

pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
