The town square is used for several purposes, from coronations to bullfights. In addition to the vibrant entertainments hosted here, tourists enjoy the charming cobbled streets and terrace cafes, perfect for a spot of people watching over the market
Museo del Prado
The Museo del Prado is, quite simply, one of the best galleries in the world; it is also the largest, something you will notice the minute you enter its cavernous interior...

At 4 de Tapas, you can enjoy the selection of tostas, salad and stews either at the bar or in the modern and stylish restaurant at the back.
