La Latina: La Latina has a festive atmosphere and features plenty of bars and restaurants, which comes as no surprise considering it has highest concentration of tapas bars in Madrid. Compared to Malasaña, the bars and restaurants attract slightly more elevated customers, but the food and drink prices are still very affordable. The nightlife provides more of an artistic and fashionable flair, whereas it is a peaceful neighborhood during the day, surrounded by old streets and buildings. On Sundays La Latina is home to El Rastro, the world-famous Flea Market where you can find anything from artisan goods to cheap home appliances at bargain prices with shoppers lining the streets looking for bargains and people enjoying cañas of beer and glasses of vermouth on lazy Sundays.
City Center: Puerta del Sol is one of Madrid’s biggest plazas and a major hub for city life both day and night. It also marks the exact geographical center of Madrid, known as Kilómetro Cero, and is a common meeting place. To the east is the iconic Plaza Mayor, and finally the Palacio Real, or Royal Palace, which stands on the grounds of the original palace from the 9th century along with a tiny citadel called al-Mudayna. To the east of Sol is known as Huertas or "El Barrio de las Letras"(the literary neighborhood). It has a long intellectual history, with many of the great madrileño writers of the Siglo de Oro once residing there, such as Lope de Vega, Quevedo, and the most famous of them all, Miguel de Cervantes Savedra. The Plaza de Santa Ana is one of the most emblematic spots in the neighborhood. It is a pedestrian paradise with limited traffic access, especially visiting the unique shops and the traditional tapas bars and party spots along Calle Huertas, with numerous bars luring potential patrons from all sides, while the side streets off of Huertas are more calm. The neighborhood is great for people who want to be in the center of touristic Madrid, near museums (with the Paseo de Prado just a few steps away), great restaurants and nightlife.
Lavapiés: 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.
