“A Busy Barrio”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2013

La Latina is the old Madrid of the Austrias, with many old churches. The San Francisco el Grande Church is one of the most beautiful churches in Madrid. The weekly flea market takes place on Sunday and it is full of people. There are many good restaurants in this area, like El Malacatin.

“Spend a day if you have it, a lot to see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2013 via mobile

The most stereotypically Spanish area of the city in our opinion, this place had a lovely atmosphere, and very patient Madrileños guiding us to various landmarks despite my broken Spanish. Lovely area to walk, drink or eat in

“Lively La Latina”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2012

La Latina - the area/district - is rather a cosmopolitan maze of streets that appears to have had waves of occupants. Accordingly the population and the shops that serve them span a wide cultural and ethnic range, and cater for most tastes. There were long standing open pavement small scale sales but whether that was because of past tradition or present financial strictures I do not know. Several interesting restaurants. I am informed La Latina may be a coming place.

“For tapas, café, wine bars or just to wander about.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2012

Very recommendable. Open all day, very vivid on Sunday mornings. Lots of young people. Relaxing atmosphere. Gourmet tapas bars, bars with music or traditional restaurants combined in the same street. On Sundays afternoon is the busiest time as the Rastro (very popular open air market) takes place few meters ahead.
