Plaza Mayor is a rectangular square in the historic centre of Madrid. It's beautifully set up, surrounded on all four sides by building facades without gaps. It is a major tourist attraction. On the square there are plenty of restaurants and at night many street artists. The square is completely a pedestrian-area without any traffic. Plaza Mayor was built during the Habsburg period in the 17th century.
