This was a really vibrant Plaza and area we visited on our eight days holiday to Madrid and what a great find. This area is a bit more edgy than some of the other more touristic plazas close by but it's a great place to...More

Cosy square with cafes & restaurants. I stopped there for coffee and dinner, friendly staff, mostly locals visiting, would definitely recommend. A bakery and a supermarket are also at hand.

Passed through here on the way back to our hotel. Could not see any special reason to hang around. You may come through here on the metro if you are visiting nearby attractions but I cannot see another reason to visit.

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
