Don't miss this fabulous opportunity to visit a really fabulous and historic area of Madrid. Restsurants are scattered throughout this fantastic area. However, we settled on the square where there are at least 30 tapas bars and restsurants. Anything you desire tapas, paella etc etc. It's exciting, musicians wandering, kids playing, great food and wines and fun. A must see... More

You can find very nice Spanish food with little price in this zone. La Latina will give you a great time with beer and nice tapas.

This is a really nice place to visit: 10 years ago it was not such a nice place as it is now, funky and hippie.

Lots of places to eat and drink in this neighborhood. Some were open early (7-8pm) for tourists. Most reopen for the dinner hour around 10pm. Put it on your list of places to go. The area has a lot of character.

If you want a local feel, tapas wherever you look, narrow cobble-stone streets, then La Latina is the neighborhood for you. I highly recommend staying here, it is central to the main places you'll see in Madrid.

We had rented an apartment in that area for 3 days. We walked around a few times. It is a low scale area where you can find a lot of small streets and small restaurants catering to the local population. Few tourists go there even though it is only about 10 minutes walk from Puerta del Sol. One exceptional place... More

Although the flea market is on a Sunday, we found a lot of stalls on the Friday when we went. Lots or small bars line the road offering traditional Spanish food. We had beer, wine, tortilla and chicken for around €4. It does get very crowded so take care with your belongings but really worth a visit.,

Mostly tourist trap restaurants. Pretty artwork. Biggest bra in the world. I read there's an awesome club with live music in this neighborhood, but we were in Madrid on a Wednesday and Monday

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.
