Plaza del Callao

Plaza del Callao

From Plaza Santo Domingo, we walk either along calle Jacometrezo or better, Preciados street, about 70-80 meters and we’re on the Plaza Callao.

Plaza de Callao is some kind of a hub to organize our walking tours of the center of Madrid. This square was built before the great reform that led to the construction of the Gran Via, in 1910.

Before 2009, this square was a bus stop, where afterwards, by making it a pedestrian area, the buses were sent to nearby Jacometrezo street. This allowed the plaza to be able to hold events of all types, of up to 10,000 people.

Near Callao there are lots of places for shopping, entertainment and dining, and great for starting and finalizing our virtual tours of Madrid.
