After visiting the Puerta del Sol, we can walk down the Calle Mayor and we will find the Plaza Mayor, this beautiful square is surrounded by beautiful buildings, its more than 10,800 square metres will captivate us, and we can enjoy a meal or an aperitif in any of its terraces, which at dusk takes on a special air. In December in this same square there is a very busy Christmas market.
The Royal Palace is located in the Plaza de la Armería, opposite the Almudena Cathedral. It was once the official residence of the kings of Spain, and is now a tourist attraction, except on occasions when it is closed to the public for official ceremonies. This Palace is surrounded by beautiful gardens, such as the Sabatini Gardens, from where there is a good panoramic view of the whole landscape. There are guided tours of the interior, including the Royal Armoury.
