La Latina is the barrio in the old part of Madrid and is the place which has the beautiful Church of San Francisco el Grande. It also hosts the weekly Sunday rastro, the flea market. There are many restaurants with plenty of atmosphere too.

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

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.
