Plaza Mayor, Madrid

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.

The sky in No. 1 drew my eye, very nice.
A polariser filter comes in handy at times :thumbsup:

Nice and very quiet? And no burger kings nor kebab houses like plaza mayor in Palma ;)
Pleased to say that there are just some traditional Spanish restaurants aroud the outside of the square and only a few street "entertainers" allowed.

Looks like a nice place to visit John as your shots clearly show:smashin:
Definitely recommend Madrid for a weekend break.

Great shots, went to Madrid myself in March. Stayed in a hotel just off the square. Fantastic place!
