This sudden oasis at the end of Madrid’s is unexpectedly peaceful. It’s also Madrid’s most popular hangout. The standouts here are two of the largest/tallest buildings in the city, and even more popular is the fountain and statue combo that makes up the Monument to Miguel Cervantes, the writer of Don Quixote. Sunbathers are regulars here, but so are nightbirds, thanks to a wonderful lighting scheme.

We love this park and always make time to visit it when we are in Madrid. Just off Gran Via it's a perfect place to relax and eat your lunch. Our favourite place is to sit on the grass banking next to the fountain. There are plenty of shops close by and there is a kiosk selling drinks and snacks etc in the corner of the park. Make time to visit this place as you won't be dissapointed. 👍👍👍👍👍
January 2019. Sunny day but cold. 2-13 degrees. It was a good sight for tourist, you can sit on the bench and enjoy the sun, you can take a picture with the monument and fountain, but that's it nothing special. Maybe knowing the history will make it more interesting and maybe at night with lights, it's a good spot to hangout.
It's beautiful. Large park. There is an amazing chinese shop under the park where the parking lot is.
How beautiful this space is. yet its not on any 'must-see' list. Grand view and the lighting at sunset was perfect.
Overall good. But dont like other Spain plaza. This one is smaller, that most like a local street park, but not a travel place.
