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

What fun on a weekend evening. So many people standing in and out of lively bars with so many tapas to choose from. Lots of choice of bar but all busy. After telling some other tourists about it we returned mid week to find it almost deserted!

This is the most lively neighbourhood of Madrid. Restaurants and bars crowded with people at all times of day. Nice to hang out for tapas and beer after a long day of walking around.

In the morning we went to El Rastro which is a little market. And in the afternoon people stayed over the bars and there is a great life. You will always have different places to visit and do

You must visit the La Latina neighbourhood of Madrid. Excellent restaurants and bars. Very lively atmosphere - especially on Saturdays. Prices for food and drink are cheaper than Gran Via / Sol etc and less touristy. Easily accessible through the Metro - come see the Real Madrid!

I will never have enough of this place. Easily accessible with Metro and lots of local arts and crafts to feast your eyes and burn your pocket! 2 hours is never enough for me to slowly choose and shop from stall to stall. Tapas bars are everywhere and you will never be hungry nor thirsty. highly recommended.

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.

Staying in La Latina

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.
