Lavapies Travel Guide


Lavapiés, which has overtaken Malasaña and La Latina as Madrid's trendiest neighborhood, has the city's highest concentration of immigrants—mostly Chinese, Indian, and North and West African—and as a result the area has plenty of international markets and inexpensive restaurants. The area also has the highest number of extant corralas—a type of building (now protected by the city after many years of abandonment) popular in Madrid in the 17th century. In the corralas, all the apartments are connected to a central patio, which serves as the community’s social hub.
