  • Madrid has many of these open court-type spaces and this is just a taste of one. Not very noteworthy but great to stumble across.  more »
  • Thus it is written on the wall of one of its magical streets, and can not have been explained better. Lavapiés grabs you with its thousands of cultures in the same square meters, with the traditional blended with the exotic, with its full of beautiful graffiti and its tiny dormers asphalt which increasingly is more impossible to rent.

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.
