Discover our apartments in Plaza España in Madrid and enjoy the city! Located between Gran Vía and Calle Princesa, Plaza España is one of the main squares in Madrid, full of life and bustling with tourists and locals all year round, either strolling through the square or resting under the shade of its trees. In the centre there are bronze statues of Don Quijote and Sancho Panza on their trusty steeds, as part of the 35-metre-high monument to Miguel de Cervantes, with a statue of the famous writer at its centre.
This emblematic square is surrounded by skyscrapers that were once the highest buildings in Spain and even in Europe, including the Torre de Madrid and the red-bricked Edificio de España. They both date from the 1950s and were designed by the Otamendi brothers. Their height and geometric shape have made them two of the most recognisable buildings in Madrid. Book your holiday accommodation in Plaza España to take a closer look.
Another must-see building is the nearby Casa Gallardo, one of the gems of Spanish Modernism graced with beautiful organic curves. Another fine building is the late-19th-century Edificio de la Compañía Asturiana de Minas.
