I was amazed by the square. I mean it’s huge and it’s full of people.

One of my favorite things to do is people watch, and there are a dozen or so restaurants/cafes to choose from. Sit down and have a an aperol spritz. Or a beer, or a cappuccino there are no wrong answers.

Go in the morning for coffee or stroll around enjoy the night scene. There is always something going on. You can people watch or just look at the beautiful architecture.

Not much going on here. We just used to go from point a to point b stopping occasionally to take it in and snap a few photos. Not worth going out of your way. The architecture is cool as is the people watching.

It is one of Madrid's attractions that you can visit on your way from shopping,but I do not recommended it to specifically go there. Not much to see in the summer. It is a square with a lot of restaurants around. However it does have a historical value, so for the people who are interested it can be good to check out.

Beautiful with lovely frescos to admire. The square has loads of cafes and restaurants and is a great place to people-watch too!
