Plaza Mayor

Plaza Mayor

The Plaza Mayor is well known for its Christmas stalls, but beyond this season, it is a lovely meeting point, surrounded by the decorated balconies of Casa de la Panadería and terraces with umbrellas to enjoy a deserved rest.
Come to enjoy a calamari baguette in any of the typical bars in the area, or, if you feel hungry enough, a complete Madrid stew in the surrounding restaurants, it is delicious!!
Plaza Mayor is surrounded by nine doors, the most famous is the Arco de Cuchilleros, which leads to the Cuchilleros street: go down the steep stair of the arc and you will be transported to the narrow streets of Madrid in the 16th century, where the knife makers (hence comes the name of the street), forged the best weapons of the kingdom and of Europe.
