  • It is located a few blocks from the Plaza del Sol and Plaza Mayor. Beautiful place to stroll and see from different angles: Debob Palace, Church and Royal Palace among other attractions. Not to be missed

  • The Royal Palace, is a Palace with activity, i.e. live, because in it is it the headquarters offices of heritage. National. An exception in the palaces. Its splendor and its conservation are impeccable, the best I've seen in all Europa.Realmente an essential visit to Madrid, as well as its temporary collection.

  • Equestrian statue of Philip IV and King images addition built in between the Royal Palace and Opera are beautifully made. This square alone rather than in the Royal Palace to look is good.

  • Beautiful place and surroundings, amazing place. Full of history and culture, amazing food near that place. Very easily accessible by metro. Highly recommend if u like to see the history of Spanish and Roman empire. There are many other attractive places around the corner. I am sure you will love it if u r in Madrid and wants to enjoy some free time.
  • Beautiful building with some really interesting things to see inside. Loved it. Go if you can.
  • Its on the way... This square is just outside the Royal palace. It has sculptures of Gothic kings in the small garden. There is kids' play area behind the gardens.
  • Nice place, has a lot of cozy small restaurants around it, with beautiful view to palace.
  • Nice place to see when you're visiting madrid. Not much to do and very crowded though
