Plaza de Santa Ana dates to the early 19th century, although its completion didn’t happen until some seven decades later. Here you’ll find monuments to two of Spain’s great writers, Pedro Calderón de la Barca and Federico García Lorca, as well as many cafes and tapas bars. Take a look toward the east for a view of the Teatro Español, the oldest theatre in Madrid. The plaza itself serves as a popular meeting point, and is excellent for people watching.

  • Ideal for a few drinks or a few tapas on its terraces. Very nice atmosphere and special attention in all its bars. I recommend La Vinoteca, to have a good wine and great Tapas

  • It is a few hundred metres from Puerta del Sol, but it is not a tourist route, so it was a quiet place. Local people gathered and gave street speeches, and it was a unique atmosphere. There are cultural facilities such as theaters, so it was interesting.
