Madrid's Plaza de la Villa is the oldest, most well-preserved part of the city. The square contains a 15th century Gothic-Mudejár home and tower, a 16th century Gothic-Plateresque palace and a 17th century Baroque home, the latter of which is used by Madrid's municipal government for official events. In the middle of the square you will find a 19th century statue to Spanish military hero Álvaro de Bazán surrounded by flowers.
