Interesting district of Madrid
Jul 2020
Salamanca is one of the districts in Madrid. It is located to the northeast of the historical center of Madrid. The impressive 19th-century boulevards of the representative Salamanca district are full of exquisite restaurants and boutiques of famous designers. The Salamanca district is one of the wealthiest areas in Madrid and some of its streets, such as Goya or Serrano, are some of the most expensive streets in Spain. Locals often visit Platea Madrid, an exclusive gourmet market set in a former theater building. You will also find the National Archaeological Museum, which displays prehistoric Iberian relics and works of art, and the Lazaro Galdiano Museum, where you can see works by Goya and Bosch.

My preferred spot in Madrid
Sep 2020 • Family
I just love those charming little streets with nice shops, restaurants and trees. It's like a small village that humanizes the city. Great to escape summer heat, have a good meal or shop around. Go to Calle Juan Jorge or Calle Puigcerda for a large choice of restaurants.

Super Posh
Jul 2020 • Solo
This is a posh barrio for shopping, eating and drinking, even when you have limited budget, window shopping could be fun. But not when you are a solo traveler in the heat at 38 degrees. Felt like melting on the street...

Upscale & well groomed
Jan 2020
I spent two weeks "in class" in this neighborhood and found myself enjoying lunch at a variety of generally good, often overpriced, restaurants, as well as discovering special shops, galleries and other unexpected pleasures. In many ways, this is not the "real" Madrid, but it is a friendly stopover if one is looking for a safe (although Madrid is generally safe everywhere) and upscale neighborhood in which to shop and dine.

A pleasant stroll in an attractive neighborhood
Sep 2019
The barrio de Salamanca is full of high end shops, very attractive buildings, and a number of nice restaurants and cafes. One store that was almost a museum itself was a wine store Mantequeria Daniel Manzano at Calle Velzaquez 45. The owner gave us a tour, and the breadth of wines he has is amazing, including wines approaching 100 years old. Indeed, we were interested in a 1973 Ribera, and while he did not necessarily have one in stock, he said it would be no problem for him to get one. There was also an interesting market in this neighborhood where the locals come to shop for meats, fish, and the like. Many attractive buildings are present as well, including numerous apartment buildings where the well to do of Madrid live. I would definitely recommend taking a leisurely stroll through this district.

Walk and shop with less tourists- loved it
Dec 2019 • Couples
We really enjoyed it- plenty of shops and not that touristic. Beautiful architecture, nice cafes. You can definitely feel there the spirit of Madrid and that it is a more high-class but also area with locals. Sit down and spend time observing the locals to get a feel of the way they live.
