Plaza Mayor, Madrid

Photograph by Mark Henley, Panos Pictures

A Madrid landmark, the Casa de la Panadería merges with a tapas bar in a window reflection. The vast building anchors Plaza Mayor, Madrid's main square since the 16th century. Over the years the plaza has seen public punishments, bullfights, and royal events; today it draws thousands of people—tourists, buskers, and street vendors—daily.
