what to see and do in madrid



With Paseo de la Castellana as one of its borders, and the colourful gay area at Chueca neighborhood as its southern neighbour, we can bum pinto this hidden gem you can miss if you visit Madrid: Las Salesas.

Considered by some people as the new Madrid “Golden mile”, this cozy neighborhood is full of fashion boutiques, beatifull cakes shops and a more calmed and relaxed atmosphere than bustling Chueca.

As main Madrid sightseeing elements we can find the Longoria Palace, a modernist style building which people usually love it at the first sight! We also have Las Salesas church (that gives the name to the neighborhood), and the magnificent Spain´s Supreme Court building next to Saint Barbara church. Everything surrouded by XIX century buildings, what gives this Madrid neighborhood an special appearence.

On the other hand, if comercial areas (like Gran Via or Fuencarral) are not your thing and you prefer exclusive fashion stores, Las Salesas will become one of your favourite Madrid neighborhoods. Here you can find exclusive boutiques, with Spanish and international designs, and located in trendy spots with a strong personality. Want to know more places to see in Madrid Las Salesas? Just pass by flower shop “Margarita se llama mi amor” (“Margareth my love is called”).
