You’ll explore Malasaña, Madrid's edgy neighborhood known for its diversity and artistic flair. Yes, it’s overflowing with hipsters but we want to show you another side to the barrio, one that’s diverse, down to earth and effortlessly laid back.

Experience its character as you take in candy-colored buildings and technicolor street art flanked by coffee shops, bakeries, and vintage clothing stores. There are countless traditional bookstores and second-hand record shops sitting alongside art associations and trendy coffee shops that transform in the blink of an eye into bars after dusk.

This was the beating heart of the famous movement La Movida Madrileña, a countercultural rebellion against the Franco era that welcomed in a more modern and accepting Spain. This open-minded attitude is still what makes this district so special, and today it attracts artists of all kinds from the worlds of street art, music and film.

It’s also conveniently where you’ll find some of the city’s coolest tapas bars. Need we say more?
