Too touristy. Everything is expensive. The tapas here go around 5euros each and it wasnt really something special. Tried the paella also but it was just okay.

This is one of the most gorgeous food markets I've visited. Loads of stalls with traditional Spanish foods, as well as a fantastic bar where you can drink cava & have some nibbles picked up from another stall. I could have easily eaten every meal...More

Wonderful market in the heart of Madrid. Just don't buy the "trick 5 meals/samples". Totally not worth it. Just find a place to sit and order what others are eating. Enjoy

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
