Like many of Madrid's plazas, this one has been modernized and paved with cement, without trees or plants. But there are many tapas bars that put out tables and chairs around the edges, and there are some cement benches in the middle, so you can...More

Fairly ordinary square by Madrid standards but we enjoyed relaxing in the sun with a large gin and tonic! Great playground for kids as well

We have stayed in Plaza de Santa Ana many times through-out the years and it is always great to return. Many years ago the "Plaza" was more vibrant and the bars/cafées were many, but still it is a very nice area.

Huertas
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once
home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de
Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The
neighbourhood is committed to celebrating its rich
heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes
from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to
them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas
receives a fair amount of spillover from the center —
