Visited multiple times and often saw large groups of tourists. It seemed popular to take your photo with Don Quixote and his sidekick. Good for a leisurely stroll. The surrounding square and fountain is pretty picturesque.

This square lies in a nice little park with the added attraction of the Monumento Cervantes. It has nice walkways, fountains, monuments and a small market within it.

Just south of the sprawling campus of the Complutense
University of Madrid, Arguelles exudes a fast-paced,
collegiate vibe. The main street, Calle Princesa, is
filled with twenty-somethings rushing between classes
and errands, meeting up with classmates, and grabbing
cheap beers and cheap eats. This is a prime shopping
spot where the major Spanish clothing and department
store chains are less busy than their downtown

Not all metro stations have lifts, I found this out when I arrived at Portal de Toledo. Plaza de Espana does, it is a very busy area, lots of intersting cafes, bars etc nearby.
