It's a nice square with restaurants and people hanging around, but the thing I like most it's the old theatre.

With many restaurants with outdoor seating, this is a great place to hang out, sip on Sangria, and have some tapas. There are also local entertainers that add to the great vibe.

Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once
home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de
Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The
neighborhood is committed to celebrating its rich
heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes
from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to
them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas
receives a fair amount of spillover from the center —
