This building in the main plaza dominates the place. It is very cool as is the whole plaza but this is the focal point. It’s the architecture that makes it impressive and it makes for great pictures.

churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
