This is by far the easiest place to find a variety of tapas fr your visit to the city. Cava Baja is the main street to head for but there are others around with lots of little tapas bars. The quality did vary greatly with some great and others just above average. Later in my trip I learned that Malasana... More

La Latina is in many ways an ideal location to stay in central Madrid. It is easily accessible via metro (La Latina and Tirso de Molina stops are only 300 meters away) making connections to anywhere in the city straightforward. Most people think of the neighborhood for a Sunday visit to El Rastro and Calle Cava Baja and the surrounding... More

When I travel to new place I always want to bring home souvenirs for our home or for people we love. If you are like me..don't spend lots of money for over priced souvenirs that you see in the stores. Go to La Latina flea market, the souvenirs are alot cheaper than the store price, 50% to 70% less.

Couldn't have stayed anywhere more charming with so many great bars with traditional and modern food and such a central location. You can walk anywhere from here but sometimes hard to leave the bar! Salut

One of my favourite parts of Madrid. Full of colour and life, especially in the evenings and during Sundays ( El Rastro). Great place to have drinks and tapas and people watch.

La Latina is a pleasant walk: gorgeous buildings, great food, and a lively spirit. We dropped by (as a group of 10ish 20-somethings) for dinner around 10 on a weeknight and spend a bit of time wandering before we settled on El Colmao (highly recommended). There was some pickup basketball, open bars, and delicious gelatto around most corners. La Latina... More
