On Friday evening you might start going for a walk to the city center focusing on Puerta del Sol (3 minutes walk from Hostal Persal through Espoz y Mina Street). From Puerta del Sol you can take Arenal Street) which leads to the Opera Square where you can see the  Royal Theatre backside buiding.

Keep on walking either by Arrieta or Vergara Streets and get to Oriente Square from where you will enjoy beautiful views of the Royal Palace and Theatre.  There is also a nice garden with statues of some twenty Spanish ancient Kings. Head towards Bailen Street to get to Almudena Cathedral where you can not miss the Cript. From here head through Mayor Street to Plaza Mayor.
