What people are saying:

The square is small, but it is one of the most important squares in Madrid, and the center of the square is a statue of King Felipe II's admiral Bassan, and there is a narrow passage connecting the house of Sisnairo on the south side of the square and the city hall of Madrid on the west side.

Additional Information

Introduction

Plaza de la Villa,one of the oldest plazas in Madrid is known for being very quiet and peaceful, an oddity in the bustling city of Madrid. The Plaza de la Villa is surrounded by 15th to 17th century aristocratic mansions, making the plaza to look as if it is from a different era. Torre de los Lujanes, a Gothic style 15th century building, is the oldest in the plaza. The Casa de Cisneros is nearly as old having been built in 1537. The old town hall, the Ayuntamiento, sits next to the Casa de Cisneros. Other buildings of interest include the Iglesia de San Andres, the Puente de Segovia, and the Palace of Uceda. The center of Plaza de la Villa is home to Benlliure's statue of lvaro de Bazan, who was the commander of the Spanish Armada.
