Plaza Mayor, Madrid
Plaza Mayor, Madrid, Spain
Beautiful Square in Madrid Distinguished by it's grand arcade and beautiful symmetry, Plaza Mayor has been used for everything from bull fight and executions to royal festivities over the years. Today the square is home to 3-story red and white residential buildings that sit atop traditional shops and restaurants. It’s a great square to walk around or stop to sip a glass of wine, despite the comical and somewhat tacky street performers.
