This is a small circular plaza along Carrera de San Jeronimo, a couple hundred meters east of Puerta Del Sol. Named after politician and orator, José Canalejas who was assassinated here in 1912.

This is a small public space surrounded by buildings, including the eclectic Casa de Allende and Meneses buildings which are appealing to the eye and quite interesting to see for those who enjoy architecture.

Plenty of restaurants, cafes and bars in the area for those who fancy a break from sightseeing. It is worth taking a look at the interesting buildings if you passing through Plaza de Canalejas during visits to Madrid.

Central square in the heart of Madrid just a few hundred meters from the nearest subway station ''Puerta del Sol''. Plaza de Canalejas is a busy place where admire beautiful and elegant art deco buildings, nice to walk around here during the day and during the evening with charming and atmospheric city lights.

The Plaza de Canalejas is located in downtown Madrid and is a very busy plaza. It is noteworthy because it has some good architecture from the past, such as the old Banco Hispano Americano, Casa de Allende and Edificio Meneses.
