When the family spent a few hours in Madrid, we only went to no fee places that gave us a glimpse of what Madrid is like. They were mostly popular spots that offered a bit of Madrid’s history and culture like Plaza de España or Square of Spain.
Plaza de España is a large square in central Madrid frequented by tourists. It features a monument of Spanish novelist Miguel Cervantes de Saavedra whose most popular work is Don Quixote of La Mancha.
At the corner of the plaza is a Metro station which makes going to and from it very convenient. The square is located at the western end of the Gran Via, Madrid’s liveliest street which is home to the city’s most important shopping area.
