Plaza de San Martin is a small square near Gran Via with the monastery on one side and an attractive looking old hotel on another side. A few seats where you can take a break. The hotel on the square is currently closed undergoing renovation.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
