Plaza Mayor

This great plaza is in the heart of Madrid and one of the prettiest open spaces in Spain. This place housed the town's most popular market in medieval times. Later, in 17th century, a famous architect was commissioned to create a greater uniformity amongst the buildings, host popular entertainments, bullfights, beatifications, coronations and even executions! You will enjoy watching life go by from one of its terraces.
