Beautiful architecture.

Plaza De Canalejas is a beautiful plaza that is always worth a look .
To be honest ,to call it a plaza is misleading as that implies a square,this is more of a wide boulevard but that said it's still cool ,the architectural gem here is Casa De Allende, an absolutely fantastic looking building, theres also some other grand buildings here and on and along Plaza De Canalejas are plenty of pubs,bars and restaurants, it's a very busy area and day or night is always busy with a great atmosphere.
Well worth checking out if your planning a holiday to Madrid.

Lovely plaza
10/2018 • Pariskunnat
Plaza de Canalejas is a small by crowded and very busy square. There are numerous shops around this place, including cafes, restaurants, bars, souvenir shops, fashion boutiques and others. And there is some beautiful architecture to look at as well. People flock to this area like flies, or at least that is what we experienced on the day we visited! Perhaps it is better at other times. Worth checking out if you are in the vicinity.

Beautiful charming square
11/2018 • Pariskunnat
Beautiful square surrounded by spectacular old building.
Surrounding area must have more bars and restaurants than most entire countries.
Like most of Madrid can be crazy busy till the early hours of the morning.
Do not miss.

Great architecture in busy "plaza "
5/2018 • Kaverit
Plaza De Canalejas is a wonderful square that we passed through as we were wandering around this part of town.
Although in my opinion this plaza looks more like a wide boulevard than a square but that said it's still a fantastic area.
The architecture is awesome here with some splendid art deco buildings that look amazing and there's some great cafes and bars not just in the plaza but on the streets leading off from the square.
It's an extremely busy and vibrant area and if crowds are not your thing then avoid as this place seems to be packed day and night.
Well worth checking out.

Another crowded square

Very busy square in Madrid. Looking around you can see several beautiful old buildings. Overall, it is very crowded so it is hard to enjoy the area.

Too busy
11/2017 • Soolomatka
Plaza de Canalejas is next to the busy main street and crowds are continually walking through and it doesn't feel like a square as such, more like part of the strret.

Crowded

Some nice bars but always too many people about. Traffic gets smelly and trumpet amateurs worsen the noise.

Lovely shopfronts but not a nice area
3/2017 • Pariskunnat
I would come here to visit the beautiful La Violeta which is a 100 year old sweetshop specialising in violet flavour confectionery. It has a lovely original wooden shopfront and there are other picturesque premises like this here. The problem is the area is very busy with traffic and building works plus you can see prostitutes in the streets around here and the businesses are set up to cater for tourists mostly so are not great.

Small plaza with architecturally interesting buildings
6/2016 • Pariskunnat
This is a small circular plaza along Carrera de San Jeronimo, a couple hundred meters east of Puerta Del Sol. Named after politician and orator, José Canalejas who was assassinated here in 1912.

This is a small public space surrounded by buildings, including the eclectic Casa de Allende and Meneses buildings which are appealing to the eye and quite interesting to see for those who enjoy architecture.

Plenty of restaurants, cafes and bars in the area for those who fancy a break from sightseeing. It is worth taking a look at the interesting buildings if you passing through Plaza de Canalejas during visits to Madrid.

Good Architecture
4/2015 • Pariskunnat
The Plaza de Canalejas has many buildings that have notable architecture and gives Madrid its particular flavor. It is a place one can visit and study its architecture and admire its buildings.
