The Spanish capital Madrid is a royal city and a centre of government. Today the Palacio Real is used for official ceremonies. Visitors can stroll through the beautiful apartments decorated with works of art by Tiepolo and others. For the ordinary people of Madrid, the Plaza Mayor is a popular meeting place, a large square surrounded by graceful mansions.
A popular speciality that is often eaten on the Plaza Mayor is a sandwich made of crushed and fried squid. With a beer, it's the perfect snack on the go. The area around the square is also known for its restaurants. But for traditional tapas bars, Plaza Santa Ana is the best place.
