This area is like a park and right in front of the Royal Palace. Right through the park is the opera hall. There are a lot of statues. It’s a nice spot.

The Plaza was full of horse manure, although I didn't see a single horse the whole weekend. Quite strange and dirty

You just need to walk around it to discover the garden and to feel full quietness in this marvelous square.

Very nicely tended plaza in front of the national palace with many statues of important Spanish figures. There is a central statue facing the Opera house. Many places to sit and relax, which makes for a nice respite.

This is a wonderful choice for a nightly stroll or for a cafe stop. We choose to have ice cream at The Cafe del Oriente. The view of the Royal Palace was magnificent. It is just fun to relax and “People Watch”
