Cautionary note:
The Spanish pride themselves in being very honest and reliable people when it comes to finding articles lost or dropped by other people, but as in all large cities it pays to be prudent when walking within large crowds such as are frequent in the Plaza Mayor and Sol areas of Madrid for example. These are prime areas for crooks to operate, so be careful with your wallet, handbag and other items of value. That said, you will always notice a healthy police force to hand in attendance at the main potential problem areas. You should feel secure, but remember to stay vigilant just in case, better to be safe than sorry.
