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.

La Latina is the old part of Madrid and has streets that are quite narrow. However there are many places that are quite interesting in this barrio. For me the best thing to see is the Church of San Francisco el Grande, one of my favorite churches in the city. On Sundays they hold the rastro (flea market) in this... More
