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

This is an older section of town. Quite lively too. Some parts look a little more less tended but it remains an interesting part of town to walk through and to discover.

One of the best places around Madrid. Good cañas, tapas and a fantastic atmosfere. Without dout an area to visit to rest your feet after a long walk from the center.

I really loved La latina - the market stalls, antique shops, boutiques, street performers and cafes and bars. There is just so much variety it could not fail to interest just about anyone.

La Latina is the old part of the city and definitely worth having a wonder around (go to the Rastro market on Sunday morning....lots of atmosphere). Make sure you go down Calle Cava Baja because there are great places to eat every few metres on this street (Taberna de Conspiradores is my favourite).

This is the original section of Madrid accessible from the stairs leading down from the Plaza Mayor. Lots of old plazas and great tapas places.

The title speaks for itself . The roads are narrow and in some places you feel the car is going to run over you . i loved this area ,especially because it reminded me of my country . Lovely tapas joints where you can spend time over lunch and dinner . Its a lively area , crowded but I love... More
