Feels like a part of Madrid for the locals - interesting to wander around and get away from the frantic shopping areas. Good for relaxing, not many boutiques or restaurants, but good atmosphere.

La Latina is perfect for an afternoon stroll. Sunday morning there is a flea market, and the area is booming with cool affordable bars, street art and young people. Definitely a good choice for an afternoon beer:)

La Latina is a wonderful place to stay in Madrid. We rented an apartment in La Colegiata street for our 3 nights stay and we really loved the neighborhood. A walking distance from most of the visiting places and with Metro close by.

Holiday apartment was located in this area. Whilst there are alot of good restaurants and easy access to plaza st ana with its good food and nightlife, the general look of the place isn't that nice (pretty run down and grubby at some parts) but did not feel unsafe. Probably better staying in the area without children.

This neighborhood has many places to eat. It has a nice atmosphere to it, and it is very close (walking distance) to all the major places in Madrid.

Super neighbourhood to bar hop, but be warned, things start very late, they aren't kidding. Don't even think about going out before 8. Be sure to go to the less polished local places for better prices and a more authentic experience.

We did not experience the cobblestones that others had written about. The architecture was nice and I enjoyed seeing the trees in the neighborhood.

On every visit to Madrid, I always take a moment to walk and eat in the La Latina neighbourhood. The streets are narrow and quaint and the local restaurants deliver good, cheap food.

Neighborhood Profile
La Latina
La Latina is a charming neighborhood with two unique personalities. At first glance, it’s distinctly old-world, with narrow streets weaving a maze among charming stone buildings in sunny, bright colors like yellow and pink. The other side of La Latina is characterized by a young population and a bohemian vibe, as evidenced by a dynamic and evolving selection of new bars, shops, coworking spaces, and other businesses popping up in the area. In the northern part of the neighborhood, the Cava Alta and Cava Baja streets constitute the tapas center of Madrid, where each age-old restaurant serves up distinctive specialties like huevos rotos and patatas bravas. Locals have come here for generations to while away hours over drinks and tapas with friends. On Sundays and public holidays, the streets to the south of La Latina metro station transform into a giant open-air market full of locals sifting through tent after tent of art, apparel, and antiques. Any day of the week, the intriguing blend of the traditional and the hip make the streets of La Latina worth exploring.
