    I used to visit this wonderful city on a frequent basis in the 90s for business, but sadly this was my first trip back since 2003. The main square is a great place to have a cold beer, tapas and people watching.

    A polariser filter comes in handy at times :thumbsup:

    Pleased to say that there are just some traditional Spanish restaurants aroud the outside of the square and only a few street "entertainers" allowed.

    Definitely recommend Madrid for a weekend break.
