La Latina is a very nice area located to the south of the city centre. Especially on Sundays this district is very popular with the locals. There are lots of bars and lovely alleys.

Not far from the Plaza Mayor but outside the standard tourist circuit, this neighbourhood is tons of fun to walk around. The La Cebada market, next to the metro station and across from La Latina Theatre, is colourful and well worth the visit, with its enticing produce, varied stalls, fun wine shop smack in the middle of the ground floor,...

If you don't feel like chilling in the Retiro during a sunny afternoon, La latina is the best place to go, it is full of street art and in every corner there is a little secret of the city, and if you go there on sunday mornings you have the RASTRO MARKET (amazing) and you can always visit LA TABACALERA...

This is a great area. Many shops lining small narrow streets. We loved strolling and window shopping. It rained the entire time we were there so would love to go back in sunshine and warmth. Still recommend though

I walked in the area for several hours, meandering through the small side streets and alleys. Quaint cafes, tapas bars and shops are plentiful, with goid architecture, colour and vibrancy making for good photos

Staying in La Latina

Neighbourhood Profile
La Latina
La Latina is a charming neighbourhood with two unique personalities. At first glance, it’s distinctly old-world, with narrow streets weaving a maze among charming stone buildings in sunny, bright colors like yellow and pink. The other side of La Latina is characterized by a young population and a bohemian vibe, as evidenced by a dynamic and evolving selection of new bars, shops, coworking spaces, and other businesses popping up in the area. In the northern part of the neighbourhood, the Cava Alta and Cava Baja streets constitute the tapas center of Madrid, where each age-old restaurant serves up distinctive specialties like huevos rotos and patatas bravas. Locals have come here for generations to while away hours over drinks and tapas with friends. On Sundays and public holidays, the streets to the south of La Latina metro station transform into a giant open-air market full of locals sifting through tent after tent of art, apparel, and antiques. Any day of the week, the intriguing blend of the traditional and the hip make the streets of La Latina worth exploring.
