    Went for a coffee, but ended up with so much fun and many choices for gifts. The place is very lively and there are other worthwhile places around it that you can reach on foot.

    Probably the most lively and happy place in Madrid. With a lot of people to entertain U, asking for a few cents at the end. Some if them are really funny and creative. Never ever miss here at weekends

    The most famous part of town, a crowded meetingpoint, very close to Plaza Major. See the statue of the bear and the Madrono tree at the corner which is the symbol of the city

    At night everything is lit and the water is beautiful. On any given night, people will ask you to go to their club or bar. Great place to go when you have no idea what to do. Promotors are ready!
