Premier square Nov 09, 2011
Located near Sol station, plaza mayor is the city's main square and pretty much in the centre too. The square has had quite a bit of history attached to it as well; it used to be the site for markets, bull fights, football games and even public executions. These days however, the square is more conservative and normal. It's a great spot to people watch, serves as a great meeting point or just as a start off point for other places nearby. The square is lined with many shops, as well as the tourist office, and is not far from many bars and restaurants. When in Madrid, it's worth stopping or starting your sightseeing from this point!!

During the day you might wanna hang out in Plaza Mayor. There are a few tapas bars there and it's fun to sip on sangria and just people watch for a while. Also, you can go to Parque buen Retiro. Grab some hashish from the many sellers(if you're into that sort of thing) and sit back with a buddy and watch the boaters in the lake/pond thing. really cool for the afternoon. There's also plenty of nooks and crannies that you can go to and relax and people watch. have fun.
