Well worth the visit.

Vibrant wonderful. Not so much a market as one big food fest! Seafood tapas, fruit and champagne party atmosphere on a Friday lunchtime! Wow.

Mercado San Miguel is a nice place to share a bit of spanish culture in terms of food. Many crowded stalls selling the typical "tapas" (small portions of every thing spanish cuisine does) . In the end, as we are tempted to try a bit of this and a bit of that, the bill increases. By night its almost impossible... More

I am fortunate enough to have a Spanish friend who knows the scene around Madrid. There are a number of markets that have sprung up in recent years where people can go and eat tapas and meet up with friends at a reasonable price. This place takes the whole experience to a new level and offers unadulterated tourist exploitation to... More

A must do in Madrid. Excellent food and drink stalls showcasing the best of Spanish cuisine. Lots to see, do and taste. Would recommend coming on an empty stomach with a big wallet! Well worth the visit.

We were really happy to discover this amazing place and went their a few time after. It is an amazing place and experience of tapas. You have different tapas makers under a same place. You choose from different one and then you can eat on the spot or seat in the middle. You have to go there to see. But... More

A carefully restored market, now selling a wide range of delicatessen in the form of stuffed olives, cheeses, tapas, jamon imberico, sushi, pastries and churros. All can be eaten on the premises and washed down with a wide range of wines and beers. There's also a good selection of sherries to sample. Was crowded when we visited but the customers... More

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
