Plaza Mayor The origins of the Plaza go back to 1577 when Philip II asked Juan de Herrera, a renowned Classical architect, to discuss a plan to remodel the busy and chaotic area of the old Plaza del Arrabal.
Plaza Mayor Great, quintessential Madrid tourist destination great for people watching. Get here early in the morning for less crowds, or come at night to see the plaza all lit up.
Plaza Mayor If you take the exit at the corner behind the horse to the right it will take you to the oldest restaurant in the world opened 1725 and operating until today
Plaza Mayor It's the classic Madrid Plaza, gorgeous but with a history that makes it more interesting. Haven't eaten anything in the plaza, not sure if tourist traps. Mercado San Miguel is close by for good eats!
