Weekly Photo: Plaza Mayor Madrid

Madrid Plaza Mayor

The Plaza Mayor is always packed with people wandering around taking pictures or sitting down for a drink.  It is as much touristy as it is beautiful, which explains the exorbitant prices for a cafe con leche and tapas, but the Plaza Mayor still merits a visit, just go for tapas elsewhere.   We saw many people drinking a bottle of wine underneath the statue of King Phillip III, and while the practice of drinking in public (the botellon) is quite popular, it is still very much illegal, so do so at your own risk.

The Plaza Mayor is the main plaza in Madrid and is situated just a few blocks away from the Puerta del Sol, the busy square that marks the official starting point for Spain’s national roads.  The plaza is surrounded by residential buildings with balconies overlooking the plaza.  If you look closely to certain buildings, you will see painted façades.Madrid Plaza Mayor
