    Plaza Mayor

    Southwest of the Puerta del Sol, Madrid 28013 Spain
    128 reviews

    Plaza Mayor was, to me, the most impressive square in Madrid. The plaza is essentially the courtyard of a red palace where several different streets come together. From the center point you can look through the archways and see down each street for quite a ways.

    Palacio Real

    Calle de Bailen, Madrid 28013 Spain
    109 reviews

    The royal palace of Spain is more of an Enlightenment Era structure reflecting the pretensions of modern Spain. Toledo was the medieval capital of the country and is more reminiscent of Spain's past. The great square in front of the royal palace is also bordered by a cathedral. It's a good place to sit and admire the architecture.

    Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía

    Calle de Santa Isabel, 52, Madrid, Spain
    63 reviews

    The Reina Sofia, along the Accademia in Venice, is the most memorable art museum that I've seen in Europe. This is where you'll find the Guernica. Although the image is famous, what you don't realize is that it's about forty feet long and ten feet high. Close up the image is so powerful it's almost domineering.

    Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza

    Paseo Prado, 8, Madrid, Spain
    30 reviews

    Really beautiful museum that houses the personal collection of the Thyssen-Bornemisza family. Incredibly, they really did have this vast an art collection that spans from early Christian icons to Rothko and everything in between. The map made it a bit difficult to find things as the layout isn't terribly logical. They also have special exhibitions and the one going on ...

    Young Madrid comes alive in this plaza. It has great energy and is full of cafes and bars. The focal point is the "Me" Hotel by Melia that dominates with its neon purple exterior that is so striking. Visit Plaza Santa Ana after midnight when it really comes alive.
