I have visited Tirso de Molina many times recently. Some great restaurants etc. Some reviewers describe this plaza as gritty. Indeed. There is a substantial population of unfortunate homeless people that have made it their base. On one occasion as we dined al fresco a...More

Cosy square with cafes & restaurants. I stopped there for coffee and dinner, friendly staff, mostly locals visiting, would definitely recommend. A bakery and a supermarket are also at hand.

One or two nice places to eat in the square, plus a theatre (we saw Carmen there), a mix of working (and not working) and middle classes with an edge to it. There is a daily flower market and on a Sunday the square is...More

A cozy plaza for both tourists and locals. Wouldn't necessarily go there if I lived in the other end of the city, but happened to live there at my last stay in Madrid.

Passed through here on the way back to our hotel. Could not see any special reason to hang around. You may come through here on the metro if you are visiting nearby attractions but I cannot see another reason to visit.

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
