My twin brother Stephen and I were wandering around the eclectic and vibrant La Latina neighbourhood when we came across this lovely little busy and bustling Plaza and what a great time we had in this square.

The square, sat on the cusp of the colourful barrios of La Latina and Lavapies, hides beautiful views, real deal Spanish soulfood like razor clams and scallops and is usually the commencement of bountiful Sunday, the best day to hit the town in Madrid, and...More
The Plaza de Cascorro is not an attractive square but it is close to where the weekly Rastro is held. There is a statue to Eloy Gonzalez, who fought in Cuba.

La Latina is a charming neighbourhood with two unique 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
businesses popping up in the area. In the northern part of the neighbourhood, the Cava Alta and Cava Baja streets constitute the tapas center of Madrid, where each age-old restaurant serves up distinctive specialties like huevos rotos and patatas bravas. Locals have come here for generations to while away hours over drinks and tapas with friends. On Sundays and public holidays, the streets to the south of La Latina metro station transform into a giant open-air market full of locals sifting through tent after tent of art, apparel, and antiques. Any day of the week, the intriguing blend of the traditional and the hip make the streets of La Latina worth exploring.
