In previous posts we’ve discussed some of the nice things to do and see in Sol and Lavapiés, the heart of Madrid. Today we are going to talk about another area in town which is worth a visit: La Latina.
As you may know, Madrid is divided in several areas. In these areas there are plenty of things to do and see, and since it is a lot of information we are going to discuss one place at a time, we started last week with Lavapiés and today it’s time to talk about Sol.
We want to bring you closer to Madrid, so you can discover its very own essence. That’s why we start this series of articles on neighborhoods in the city, so you learn where to go, what to find, and what to expect when you arrive here.

Madrid is a quite big city so it offers millions of different things to do. Tapas, museums, theaters, city tours, parks, and of course markets.
