  • It is definitely the main square of the neighborhood: a large square, partly wooded, surrounded by palaces, I would say ordinary, quite similar to each other on at least 3 sides. Honestly during our visit did not make a nice impression (perhaps because expectations were high). In the center of the square, near a large arch, there is the marble monument dedicated to Daoiz and Velarde, the gunners who in 1808 defended the barracks, at the time located here, against the French. Apart from this monumental central part, at the 4 corners of the square, among the trees, there are as many play areas for children. Only a small part of the square, the one that makes the corner with the lively calle de San Andres, is occupied by the dehors of some locals (4/5 locals), while on the side along San Andres there are stalls. It is therefore this part of the square that is frequented (apart from the families who bring the children to play in the aforementioned games dedicated to them). Similar to other squares, I would have expected to find many more dehors, crowded with people, instead most of the square is in fact empty. However, the square is quiet because it is not crossed by sliding lines. At the time of our visit a good part of the square was affected by works, so this probably damaged, provisionally, the appearance.

  • Bonita Plaza, in the neighborhood of Malasaña, with beautiful monuments, to go you take the metro to Tribunal. But at night there's a lot of drunk, no, no, friends if.
