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

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
