  • Walked pass this in day now on way airport. This is manneken-pis of Madrid. Have a look

  • Typical madrid symbol. Visitors have to pay attention to pick pocket.

  • Crazily crowded. Beware of pick pockets! Not too fantastic on this tree and bear. But it's a nice square though.

  • A must-see if you are visiting Madrid. Just keep in mind that this is a popular spot for tourists

  • This area reminds me of Times Square. A ton of people and shopping. I was excited to see this statue. A must see in Madrid.
