Very nice and beautiful square. It's for sure worth visiting if you are in Madrid. I can recommend seeing it.

Quite busy place, where we see enough people to eat lunch or to walk the animals. I made a small picnic by the pews and it was quite nice. It's quite interesting.

This small public space was close to our Airbnb so we walked through it most days. Nice place to sit and enjoy a picnic. The big monument is an endless source of photo opportunities for tourists.

Similar to some other reviews, it's an ok square, nice fountains, would not make a special effort to visit unless heading around or passing that way. 5-10 minutes max.

This is a great spot for a photo opportunity with Don Quixote and Sancho in the background. We were there around 9:30 AM in July. So we had to adjust to the south a bit to get a good shot without the sun burning out...More

Not all metro stations have lifts, I found this out when I arrived at Portal de Toledo. Plaza de Espana does, it is a very busy area, lots of intersting cafes, bars etc nearby.
