There is no doubt that the Plaza Mayor of Madrid is one of the main touristic attractions of the Spanish capital. And maybe this is due to the fact that there in the Plaza Mayor (situated in the city center of Madrid) many tourists but also Madrid’s inhabitants come there to admire the beauty of the place and to spend some time in its bars and restaurants. If when you are in the city, you want to live in a very touristic and animated area, the best option among the cheap accommodation in Madrid would be to rent an apartment in the center of Madrid. We swear that you’ll always find places and amazing activities near from your accommodation.

One of the best advices that we can give you is to pay a particular attention to the famous Arco de Cuchilleros as you are in the Plaza Madrid. It is one of the main accesses located in the S-W of the plaza. Its big size sets the Arco de Cuchilleros apart from the rest and it has been named like that because it adjoins with the Cuchilleros Street, where the cutlers were settled by the past.

When you leave the Plaza Mayor through the Arc of Cutlers you’ll find lovely taverns where you can eat tapas such as  Mesón del Champiñón, el Mesón de la Tortilla, el Mesón del Cava, el Mesón del Jamón etc. There is a tip: eat tapas and drink wine or champagne going from one tavern to the other until you fell full.

If you’re fond of flamenco or if you only want to seize the opportunity to be in the centre of Madrid to go to a flamenco club in Madrid, there you can find the Tablao Flamenco Arco de Cuchilleros which is located at the 7, Cuchilleros Street. There you can watch amazing flamenco shows and live music on Tuesday and Wednesday and from Thursday until Sunday you can watch groups dancing the rociero.
