The Plaza de la Cebada is one of the main plazas of the Barrio de la Latina. There is a very large market here with a large parking lot beneath it. Close to it is where they hold the weekly rastro flea market on Sundays.

The typical La Cebada area proposes many different terraces and restaurants, tapas bars, cafés. It is always full of people, mainly on the weekends. Sunny square. Nice usual tapas at good price and quick service on simple stanless steel tables.

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
