Among the buildings of Plaza Mayor, your eyes will immediately be drawn to the frescoes adorning the facade of the so-called "Casa de la Panaderia", or the house of the bakery. This building dates back to the late 1500s, but has been rebuilt several times over the centuries and is so named because its ground floor originally housed the "tahona pública", a sort of bakery for the poor. Currently its "Hall of Columns" is the seat of Madrid's Central Tourism Office.
