Neighborhood information

Officially named Embajadores, this neighborhood is better known as Lavapiés, which is its main plaza and metro stop. It experienced a revival that began in the 1980’s, when it became popular with young people and artists. At the heart of this diverse area is Plaza de Lavapiés, which is a meeting point for immigrants and Spaniards alike. Some consider it a “dangerous area”, but residents of the area find this to be untrue. In spite of the seamless blend of cultures, the neighborhood is a crowded one, characterized by narrow streets and buildings with painted facades. The Calle de Argumosa, which runs to the east of Plaza de Lavapies, is fully of trendy bars and is one of the most popular places in Madrid to sit on a terrace and enjoy a caña (small beer). The streets that stretch to the north and west from the plaza are filled with ethnic restaurants and shops. It's also home to many cultural attractions like the Vallé-Inclan Theater. The iconic Reina Sofia art museum also sits at the neighborhood's edge.
