  • An absolutely charming place to take a walk or enjoy a coffe . The buildings are beautifully maintained and I could stare at them for hours. It’s true there are many “ street performers” who usually create small bulks of crowds and that brings thieves too but if you are careful with your belongings you will enjoy the place and be safe :)
  • A very nice place to spend an evening. Surrounded by lots of bars,restaurants, hotels, and shops. You can find people who do caricatures and sell some funny toys. You can spend hours here relaxing and trying the food and drinks. Definitely a must in Madrid
