Its a perfectly fine plaza, since we were there in February there was not a lot of activity but it seemed safe enough and a pleasant place to stroll around.

In the middle of the Austrias quartier of Madrid with the greatest buildings of the period and with the two main attractions by its sides. The Royal Palace and the Jardines del Moro as well as the Opera House (Teatro Real). The Square itself has nice gardens to relax and enjoy a day under the sun.
Beware! Pickpocketing going on with tourists not taking care of their belongings (nothing to worry about if you are half-streetwise)

Not much to see around here but worth ticking off the list. The gardens are well maintained.

A really beautiful area, with good bars, to sit and have a lazy 'copa cerveza' or a nice coffee. The prices are a little more expensive than other areas but it's worth it. La Botilleria is a nice bar even though it is not noted on the trip advisor map. It also has WiFi, hence I'm writing this review outside the bar while have a cold beer!
