Stay away from it or be extremely careful. People approach you in a friendly way, they offer you to drink, they show you they know people working in restaurants and bars. Then they try to make you drunk, drug you putting stuff in your drink...More

When we come to Madrid we stay just North of this barrio but we spend a lot of time just wandering around. There are so many great independent shops and cafes here and it is not full of tourists and it feels safe.

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
