We were staying in Madrid in September, and visited the Plaza, what a wonderful find! The little stalls serving food were mostly all very good, and extremely reasonable. If you are traveling here, and have a place to cook, I highly recommend getting your supplies from here, everything is very fresh, and the vendors are all friendly and helpful

Embark at the La Latina Metro and walk up to Plaza De La Paja, enjoying the beautiful buildings and the church as you walk. Plaza de La Paja is an adorable little Plaza with a few restaurants and tapas bars and a vegetarian restaurant too. We sat there for drinks and tapas and had a great time people watching.

The Plaza de la Cebada is one of the main plazas of the Barrio de la Latina. There is a very large market here with a large parking lot beneath it. Close to it is where they hold the weekly rastro flea market on Sundays.

The place where the young people meet, a lot of concerts, basketball games, kids with skateboards, urban graffitis, quite a delightful view.

The typical La Cebada area proposes many different terraces and restaurants, tapas bars, cafés. It is always full of people, mainly on the weekends. Sunny square. Nice usual tapas at good price and quick service on simple stanless steel tables.

Found this market on the last day of our trip. It's a much more traditional market selling a variety of produce. more what we were looking for rather than the tourist hyped mercado San Miguel

La Cebada market is located just by the La Latina metro stop, and it's worth a visit. It's a vast covered market, on two floors. A bit beaten up (parts are currently being renovated), the market is a bustling center of activity all day, but especially in the morning hours. Stalls and stalls of fruit, fish, meats, canned items, teas,... More

Staying in La Latina

Neighbourhood Profile
La Latina
La Latina is a charming neighbourhood with two unique personalities. At first glance, it’s distinctly old-world, with narrow streets weaving a maze among charming stone buildings in sunny, bright colors like yellow and pink. The other side of La Latina is characterized by a young population and a bohemian vibe, as evidenced by a dynamic and evolving selection of new bars, shops, coworking spaces, and other businesses popping up in the area. In the northern part of the neighbourhood, the Cava Alta and Cava Baja streets constitute the tapas center of Madrid, where each age-old restaurant serves up distinctive specialties like huevos rotos and patatas bravas. Locals have come here for generations to while away hours over drinks and tapas with friends. On Sundays and public holidays, the streets to the south of La Latina metro station transform into a giant open-air market full of locals sifting through tent after tent of art, apparel, and antiques. Any day of the week, the intriguing blend of the traditional and the hip make the streets of La Latina worth exploring.
