Start off in Madrid's geographical center and busiest plaza, Puerta del Sol, meaning Gate of the Sun. The name comes from the 15th century when it used to be an eastern-facing gate of the walled city, welcoming the sun daily. Today it is a busy hub and meeting place for locals and an excellent spot for people watching. A few minutes stroll away from Puerta Del Sol sits another famous landmark, the vast cobble-stoned Plaza Mayor.
This is a great place to sample some Spanish wines and tapas at one of the many cafés surrounding the square. Minutes away from Plaza Mayor is the famous Mercado de San Miguel, an indoor market that offers mouthwatering cooked food and fresh meats and produce. Take a spot at one of the standing counters, next to the well-dressed businessmen on breaks, and dig into a traditional Spanish lunch.
Whether you're looking for local cheeses, fresh pastas, tasty deserts or raw oysters, this market boasts just about everything for the food lover. Centro is home to many barrios, or neighborhoods, all of which have their distinct style and character. Art-lovers will enjoy.
