I can't really understand the motication of people visiting this place. The Square is crowded with drug dealers, and the migrants suggest you to buy drugs even when you get off the subway. I felt unsafe & worried. No Guardia Cívil is around, and police will never help you if you will get in trouble there.

This is a very sketchy area in Madrid, drugs, prostitution... It was a very popular neighborhood in Madrid in the 19th century; poor people used to live here. Nowadays, it is a dangerous neighborhood. The bars are nice, but I do not recommend it at night.

People live And die here, warts and all. A working, breathing, sweating area home to many immigrants and in the evening police going about their business of frisking young men. Not threatening, tho.

The area that makes up the Lavapies neighbourhoods is so good to visit and Plaza Lavapies suns up the great vibe in this area.
Lots of bars and pubs in this square, cool architecture and a totally bohemian vibe,I love the area,its cool and always a joy to visit.
Well worth checking out if your in the area.

Plaza Lavapies is an interesting area in the middle of the Lavapies district. The area is quite multicultural and this means that you get an amazing variety of food as well as culture. Walking through you get the feeling there are many poorer families in the district in general, but the Plaza and other spots in the district are worth visiting at least for the range and quality of the food on offer.

The colors, the arquitecture, the food and the mix of cultures in Lavapies is tremendous. One of the coolest places in Madrid for sure.

There was nothing really to see here. Walked around the neighborhood on a Tuesday night, so maybe it wasn’t lively because it was a week day. Met some nice people from the neighborhood in one of the bars, but that was it.

This location is close to the all the major attractions (within 3 kms). Apart from being close, the Lavapies metro station is nearby which is well connected to other attractions. Good restaurants & Mall/grocery nearby to shop from.

You are close to the best spots in Madrid , or at least the better known and outstanding ones. This barrio mixed new and traditional. safe to walk around anytime, and I mean ANYTIME.
