One of the loveliest squares in Madrid. Lovely old buildings face a formal Italian style formal park with statues and, beyond it, the royal palace. You can sit at one of the cafes and enjoy the quiet as no car traffic enters the square. They are expensive but worth it for the location.

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.
