  • One of the oldest neighborhoods in the Madrid but nothing super special. If you are planning a nice little sightseeing trip and you have time you should check this place also. :)
  • This is the heart of the very early Madrid and the only place where you will find some very rare moorish architectural details. The main building is the former Town Hall (now still a municipal building). There you can see the original symbol of Madrid (a dragon) along with the present one (a bear).
  • Very nice, lots of history here, get a free tour if you can!
  • Historic place. Unfortunately didn't have much time to see it better
  • If you can find a local to guide you with the story behind it while walking it will be great.
