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.
Been to Sevilles Santa Cruz area. That cities tapas zone.
Madrids la latina especially this street is on another level.
Authentic Madrid fun.
Virtually the whole area is closed on Tuesdays I think.
Other wise this area is always full to the brim at night and after the rastro flea market on Sundays it is absolutely insane with people rubbing...
We came across this most beautiful of churches as we were wandering around the eclectic and vibrant neighbourhood of La Latina.
The church has stood here proudly since 1664 and although I never visited the interior of this church I was awestruck by the sheer beauty of the Baroque style of architecture of the facade .
In a city with...

Travelled to Toledo from Madrid via Renfe railroad. Cost for two adult returns 41 euros. Be advised to book your train in advance as once the train is full the company stops selling tickets (unlike many countries - the UK for instance - which allows standing room, Renfe does not. So once all seats are sold you have to wait...
We kind of stumbled upon this Museum while exploring Madrid. It was free admission, so why not. Beautiful museum misty about the history of Madrid and the culture. It's kind of confusing the layout, a map would've been nice to have. If you're looking for a free attention this is it. There's lots of things to look at and learn...
I stumbled upon this gem when walking along Calle Mayor to visit the Royal Palace and catbedral. It is very small but delightfully pretty and I was drawn by the name Cathedral on the wall outside.
It was a Sunday morning and a mass was ongoing but I returned later in the day to see it without bothering the worshippers....
Our first visit was inspired by recommendations on trip advisor. It was so good we visited again. The food, the staff and the ambience all combined to make eating here a very special and intimate experience...but be sure to book ahead as there are only eight tables and walk-ins had to be turned away.

What an awesome little place!
We had dinner on a Sunday night.
Everything was great!
The enchiladas with reblochon cheese, the tacos with 8 hours cooked pork and the nachos were amazing.
And the dessert of a chocolate fondant with sweet and sour sauce was the highlight.
Service was very friendly and fast.
Lots of fun and highly recommended!
One of the best places for Paella in Madrid. Forget the microwave garbage at most restaurants or overpriced formal places. This is the real deal. Great taste cooked traditionally. Sunday lunch is best day to visit. Small place but excellent Paella.
This hotel is located in the older part of Madrid just minutes from Mayor Plaza and easy walking to Gran Via. There are also great tapas and bars along the street that the hotel is on, including the bar at the hotel. They also offer breakfast that is not included but it’s priced well for the meal provided. The hotel...
Great Location in the heart of Madrid, walking distance to ameneties and sights (5 mins from laza de Mayo). Breakfast was good and there was the option for lunch and dinner also. Food and drink is good, and it should be as the hotel is competing with a street full of resttaurants. Our room was modern, spacious and a very...
5 Nights in Madrid at the Ganivet Hotel. Good location and comfortable stay. The hotel is close to the major sights and attractions of the city such as Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor and the Royal Palace. We stayed at this hotel last year and are very pleased with it.
The hotel is very centrally located. It is nice and clean, but a bit on the old and outdated side. The staff was very nice and the front desk clerk was very nice, friendly and informative. We went to him on basically a daily basis for hidden gems in the city, and he never disappointed. The rooms were actually bigger...
