The Scottish Salmon . . . . wow!

Dined in mid-September with local business colleagues. The Scottish Salmon preparation was the most incredible I have ever enjoyed!

I visited this fabulous shop about 4 weeks ago during my trip to Madrid. Claudio was so friendly and helpful, and speaks very good English! To make a choice was difficult, all scarves were exquisite. Claudio helped me select a gorgeous scarf, a treasure to keep forever.

I am awed by the beauty of these scarves and shawls. So glad I was able to meet Claudio who showed us all around his workshop and explained what is required for him to produce these works of art. He even demonstrated the "proper" way for me to wear my shawl! I can only hope I'll remember now.

I found Lola Fonseca thanks to the many positive reviews posted on Tripadvisor and I am so happy that I did. We planned our day to make sure that we would be there before 1:00. We arrived and were greeted by Claudio who was so helpful. It didn't take me long to pick out my selection. I found a beautiful... More

After all the glowing reviews it seems a bit presumptuous to add another, but I will promise to be brief. Lola Fonseca is everything the earlier reviewers have described and more. I stopped by the shop to buy a scarf for a friend, and then went back to buy two more. Each time I had long conversations with Claudio who... More

What a pleasure to visit the shop while the artist was at work. We bought scarves for our mothers, and they loved them. This is great place to get a unique gift that is a work of art. Everything in the shop is beautiful, and while there are some very pricy pieces in the store, there are also lovely scarves... More

Lola takes real pride in every silk scarf he carefully crafts. His passion is contagious and you end up buying a scarf you had not planned on buying, but still feel good about it.

If you are looking for the perfect hand made and hand painted silk scarf than look no further than this establishment. There is a limited supply however each one is unique and hand made. I am in love with my scarf..and will treasure this precious possession for the rest of my life. Also, there is a gorgeous puppy, Carmelita, that... More

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood Profile
Huertas
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighborhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighborhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
