Very long street filled with various shops and some empty shops that had a grimy tired looking feel to it. It did look better at night when crowds filled it though

A stroll down this street any time of day is a worth while experience with all its bas, cafes and shops, not to be missed if you are in Alcala.

This is a really old cobbled street lined with plenty of places to eat and drink. It has a fantastic atmosphere. Photo was taken early in morning but street normally really busy.

Along the top of Cervantes Square, it is definitely worth a walk up and down. It is all under an arcade... so it would be good on both a very hot, sunny day or a rainy day.

Not as famouse as any of the other touristic sites near Madrid, but in my opinion as beuatiful as the others. Perfect destination for a half day tour for those who wants to see a historical centre well preserved and not as crowded as Toledo/Segovia....More

Long street full of restaurants and shops, there are many terraces to have some food. As well, you can find the house museum of Cervantes with the two statues on the door. I recommend: going outside the old area to find cheaper restaurants
