The chocolate is thick and the pastry crispy. The little shop tucked up a side street is a busy place with customers from around the world stopping in for a classic taste of Madrid.

Stopped off here for a try of tasty Churros with hot chocolate sauce whilst walking around some of the cultural sites of Madrid. Well worth a visit, fast and friendly service, plenty of seating inside and a nice atmosphere.

Wow! This is the real deal! A must when you visit Madrid even if your not big into churros. We tried another nearby churros place a few days prior and it wasn't even close. San Gines is it! The lines are usually long but it's...More

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
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
