Plaza Mayor – Madrid

One of my favorite places in Madrid that I wish we had had more time to hang out in is Plaza Mayor.  Surrouned by restaraunts, cafes, and street performers it captures what plazas in Spain are all about.


I enjoyed the entrances being a little askew.

According to our guide there is a new trend in Europe which involves putting padlocks on public features to mark significant events like a first date, proposal, whaterver.  Several of the light posts in Plaza Mayor had several locks.
