The Plaza de la Comendadoras in Madrids Centro district is to be given a major revamp. The project includes planting 30 new trees and over 200 shrubs, plus the creation of a childrens playground and a park for elderly citizens. Overlooked by the convent of Las Comendadoras de Santiago, the Plaza currently acts as a through zone for traffic. It is the traditional venue for the annual ceramics fair held during the celebrations for Madrids patron Saint Isidro in May, as well as hosting a crafts market most weekends. Work on the Plaza de la Comendadoras is to be completed in three months at a cost of 184,495.
