  • This statue stand in tribute to Felipe III, king of Spain from 1578 to 1621. The statue stands in the centre of the very touristy Plaza Mayor and is an equestrian statue of the King riding triumphantly upon his stallion. If you're in Plaza Mayor, it's worth having a look, otherwise it's just another equestrian statue, but albeit a nice one. Be careful around this statue though as there's lots of people in costumes trying to get you to take photos with them and it won't be free.
  • Large plaza with plenty of restaurants and tourist spots around the plaza. Didn't try any of the restaurants because they basically look like tourist traps however some of the trinket shops around the plaza had some good deals. Good place to spend the day and do some people watching. Wasn't too crowded on a weekday. Probably will be a lot more crowded on weekends. On the day we were there, the royal cavalry were parading in and out of the plaza every 15 - 20 min for about 2 hours. Not sure why they were doing it for 2 hours. In any case, it was fun to watch and get some great pics.
