The perfect tour through the Spanish capital, should start at Plaza Mayor. Situated at the heart of Madrid, the square is surrounded by stunning buildings from the 17th century.

The best way to experience Plaza Mayor is by grabbing a cup of coffee at one of the picturesque small cafes at the square.
There is no better way to experience the vibe of a city, by going to the market. Every Sunday, Madrid is hosting one of the biggest open air flea markets in the country. Visitors can find over 3500 stalls situated between Plaza de Cascorro and Ribera de Curtidores, covered by a huge variety of products. From old furniture antiques to different small trinkets, you will be able to find everything. As the market is extremely popular, it can get extremely busy and hectic.
