Dinner at Los Galayos at Plaza Mayor
8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

C. de Botoneras, 5, Centro, 28012 Madrid

Los Galayos was founded in 1894 and located in Playa Mayor, Madrid’s grand central square which is the heart of Hapsburg Madrid, the oldest part of the city.

Plaza Mayor was erected on the former Plaza del Arrabal, where Madrid’s most popular market was held till the late 16th century. When King Philip II moved the Spanish court from Toledo to Madrid in 1561, he began to plan a remodelling of the square, although it wasn’t till his son and successor Philip III was in power, that the new square was built.

Plaza Mayor was designed by architect Juan Gómez de Mora, who brought architectural uniformity to this open space which would be used to host all kinds of events, from local festivities and bullfights to beatifications, coronations and even the occasional auto-da-fé during the Spanish Inquisition.
