When touring Madrid, you’ll end up at Plaza de Espana Madrid-- whether you want to or not. It lies on one of the city’s main traffic arteries, in close proximity to other major destinations. Fortunately, the monument to Miguel de Cervantes makes your visit worthwhile. Serving as the plaza’s centerpiece, this architect-designed statue of the writer himself, Don Quixote and his true loves, and his sidekick Sancho Panza is impressive. Join other tourists in taking your picture with these literary figures. Plan my trip to Madrid with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • During our stay in Madrid this area was surrounded by boarding so we were unable to see the Plaza, this was very disappointing especially as we had chosen a hotel to be near this Plaza  more »
  • Located on Gran Via. In the center is the fountain dedicated to Miguel de Cervantes and other monuments.

  • Loved it! Spent a week during Christmas break. Very different from the states on Christmas day. On Christmas day the entire plaza was open, many people were out walking around enjoying coffee and tapas. Very enjoyable, laid back
  • Great location but poor square/plaza vibe. Much improved with the new VP hotel located across the street. Great view from the hotel terrace bar/restaurant.
