If you like being in the heart of the action it is hard to beat this neighborhood just steps away from Plaza Major and Puerta del Sol. This area must have the highest concentration of bars and restaurants in the world. You will be within easy walking of most of old Madrid's must see attractions and the Metro system is... More

La Latina neighborhood, this is a dynamic, lively and full of things to do, at any hour of the day is a pleasure to come here, during the day visiting the many tapas bars and in the evening try one of the many pubs. Absolutelly a district of Madrid not to be missed.

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

La Latina is in many ways an ideal location to stay in central Madrid. 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.
