Madrid Walking Tour, Including La Latina and Lavapiés
There’s much to Madrid behind the main tourist sights, but finding and enjoying its tucked-away attractions is easier with a guide. This small-group walking tour covers two historical and happening neighborhoods; discover hidden corners and experiences that many visitors miss. Stroll the old La Latina district and multicultural Lavapiés, savor tapas at a market, and discover Madrid’s art and flamenco scene, all with a guide to bring them to life.
What to Expect
Meet your guide in central Madrid and dive into the buzzing neighborhood of La Latina, considered the city’s oldest area.

Explore the lanes and squares as your guide tells of the district’s history and legends. Pass gardens, cafes, and old inns converted into boutique hotels and stop for photos.

Walk along Madrid’s original main street and call at a historical convent that sells traditional sweets handmade by the nuns. Buy some sweets (own expense), if you wish, before heading to the multicultural quarter of Lavapiés, where Spanish eateries rub shoulders with Asian and African shops.
Learn about the eclectic community and peruse the fresh produce stalls at a local food market. Enjoy tapas tastings and drinks, and visit a nearby arts center to view modern artworks and learn about Madrid’s flamenco culture.

Lastly, browse some multicultural shops for mementos (own expense) before your tour ends in Lavapiés.
