Plaza Del Sol is a rather busy plaza in the Gracia neighbourhood, it's not as famous as say Plaça De Catalunya or Plaça Espanya or as beautiful as Plaça Reial but it's popular.
The architecture is nice,there's some really good cafe's and restaurants here and...More
As with most plaza's in Madrid these are a centre of social life. People congregate here after work and over weekends.
Plaza del Sol is particularly vibrant. We spent some time here of the weekend and on a Monday.
It gets REALLY busy!
Personally I don’t see a lot to attract me to Plaza del Sol however it is clearly popular.

Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the centre, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the
vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theatre that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.
