Madrid Destination Guides


A multicultural neighbourhood in the centre of Madrid

Thanks to its high concentration of immigrants (more than any other barrio in Madrid), Lavapiés is a vibrant hodgepodge of old señoras, African and Asian immigrants, refugees and an increasing number of “young creatives” thanks to its cheap rent and central location. The stone pavements of Lavapiés are lined with endless Indian, African and Asian restaurants to suit all budgets.

Top tip:

For a taste of the best food and drink this neighbourhood has to offer, wander down Tribulete and Miguel Servet streets.
