A very popular square of Madrid

Plaza Mayor of Madrid was at the beginning in the XVI century this square was the biggest open market.

The Plaza Mayor has held several types of events, like Christmas Market, bullfights, soccer games and publics executions. Now days, holds concerts for San Isidro celebrations and the the Christmas Market.

In the middle of the square you will find a huge bronze statue of King Philips III built in 1616.

All around the Plaza Mayor, you have shops, restaurants and terrace where you can eat, rest and have a cold beer in hot summer days.

If you plan to visit the Plaza Mayor, the address in case you will take a taxi is Plaza Mayor (obviously), I do not recommend you to take your own car because is a nightmare to find a parking place even though there is a parking under the square.

If you plan to visit the Plaza Mayor you have to try the Calamari Sandwich that you will find in almost every bar around the square, it’s typical of Madrid and after a long day walking you will love it. In my humble opinion, the best bar for the Calamari Sandwich is the one on Postas street nº 11, the bar is call “Bar Postas” and you can’t miss it.

You can also take the bus to get there, the buses that goes to Plaza Mayor are lines (3, 17, 18, 23 and 31). The subway also have two stations near by, the Puerta del Sol (L1, L2 and L3) and Tirso de Moline station (L1).
