We went to see the Plaza but also to photograph the statues of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza. Unfortunately, well I guess that depends on your perspective, tourists crawl all over the statues so actually getting a photo without a horde of people you don’t...More

This place is wonderful. You can stroll in the park or relax near the statue or fountain. Good for kids as they can run around and climb on the monument.

Situated at the end of Gran Via, Plaza de España is very close to many other attractions such as Royal Palace, temple of Debod. It’s a convenient place with young children due to the water fountain and plenty benches to sit.

store chains are less busy than their downtown

Not all metro stations have lifts, I found this out when I arrived at Portal de Toledo. Plaza de Espana does, it is a very busy area, lots of intersting cafes, bars etc nearby.
