what to see and do in madrid


A trip to the past of the city, mixing the most bustlings streets with the most peacefull squares. A neighborhood full of life and history, where some the most interesting Madrid activities happens: spending a Sunday morning at flea market El rastro, going back to the 17th century by visiting Madrid ancient walls, or having some tapas & cañas (beer). We are talking about one of the most popular Madrid neighborhood: La Latina

Madrid activities you must do

Did you know that La Latina has a church with the third biggest dome in all Christendom (with paintings of Spanish paintor Goya)? More things to do in Madrid? Stroll through a gorgeous dahlia park with a quite unknown overlook with stunnings views of the city. Or discover a hidden park in the middle of the neighborhood, like an oasis with fountains and far from the city noise. Yeah, there are many things to do in Madrid besides visiting the Royal Palace!

Mixing old and new

However, La Latina is more than ancient, historical buildings. There is a quite impressive viaduct that crosses the hood (and there is an small sister of the well-known Alcalá´s Gate: the Toledo´s Gate). On the other hand, if you love thetre, one of the Madrid activities you can´t miss is attending to a performance at La Latina theatre, one of the most relevant of the city.

La Latina: the neighborhood of genuine madrid

And of course, one of the best things to do in Madrid: eating tapas!

In La Latina you can have a walk and get lost in their narrow, silent streets…or sitting in a bustling plaza with lots of terraces and bars (you will fall in love with Cava Baja and Cava Alta street, trust me). But, everywhere you go, you can taste delicious and all-kind tapas.

But if you are looking for alternative and fun activities to do in Madrid, you must go to Virgin of the Dove popular festival. You will be transported to the old and genuine Madrid, with that spirit of old town, far from classic Madrid nightlife.
Of course, this is just a sample of all Madrid activities you can do! Would you like to go all over La Latina neighborhood without missing a thing, at your own pace? C´mon, we have a nakaplan full of fun activities to do in Madrid waiting for you!
