Plaza Dos De Mayo - Review
The Plaza del Dos de Mayo was the same sight where the uprising was held on May 2 at the beginning of the War of Independence of Spain. The Plaza was constructed in the late 1860’s and is popular for a sculpture placed underneath the entrance arc, carved in marble by Antonio Solá Llansas in 1831 that represents the heroes Daoíz and Velarde.
The church of Saints Justo and Pastor (known as Church of Wonders) is another highlight of the Plaza.

Plaza Dos De Mayo, Madrid Reviews
Sitting in any of the cafes around the Plaza of 2nd May is lovely. You need to check as many cafes as possible as the the prices vary from outrageous to reasonable, and as it is Spain the service is never prompt no matter how much you're paying for your coffee. Very pleasant scenery even with the traffic, so make sure you have at least a couple of hours.
An eclectic mix of people and especially in the evenings where the Plaza becomes a social gathering point. A few "fashionable" over priced shops but a great variety of cafes and places to eat. Don't be surprised to find buskers and people selling their wares - everyone has a chance here!
A little bit dirty ,incredibly historic, irrevocably a classic terraza madrilena. A millenials' paradise...In the night it changes dramatically its character and it looks like the 60's are definitely back! Great cafes, pizzas and a biike store. What else to ask!
Nothing to it. Passed other squares more interesting. Food is low quality at the restaurants and high price. People harassing you to buy things
Almost a synonim for nightlife in Malasana, it just has a special atmosphere here. I will miss people playing guitar, the beer vendors and police coming to keep people safe. One of my favourites in Madrid.
