  • The hardest thing is to know where it begins and where it ends; It is between the paseo del Prado and plaza de Santa Ana. Starting from there, kicking the streets of the neighborhood, starting with orchards. The name comes from the authors of the golden age that have walked its streets. Bars, restaurants, theatres, shops and atmosphere, with sites which are an institution for decades and that maintain its prestige and support, keeping old customers and new, in a mixture of ages that is not at all sites.

  • We did the tour with Rafa, on a day of more than 40 degrees, and very much enjoyed it. It caught us his love for Hispanic literature and discover details that otherwise would have gone unnoticed. Until I went back to read "life is a dream"! Highly recommended.

  • Quarter highlighted by the verses of different poems, recorded on the cobblestones of the streets. It is very pleasant to walk through the same.

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
