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?

My mother and I toured with Silvia on our first day in Madrid. She is very friendly, full of energy and provided us with her inside view of 3 neighborhoods (Salamanca, Malasaña and Centro). She took us off the touristy streets and it made the tour more personable. She also took us to one of her favorite lunch spots...La Pescaderia. It was delicious and very reasonable. If you’re looking for an overview of the city, I highly suggest requesting Silvia!
My son, his wife and I had a WONDERFUL evening with Silvia. We walked through her neighborhood, visited some tapas bars, went to a gallery, and stopped at a tea and spice shop. The highlight of our evening was sharing wine and dinner at one of her favorite restaurants. We could have talked for hours, but time was running very late and she had an early flight in the morning. A FANTASTIC TIME WITH SILVIA!
Minha experiência começou alguns dias antes da data marcada para o tour, sendo que Nicola, que foi responsável por me guiar no tour, me enviou emails me explicando em detalhes como iriamos nos encontrar, e uma sugestão de intinerário. Na hora marcada, começamos o passeio por Madri. Tive a oportunidade de conhecer vários detalhes históricos dos principais edifícios e ruas da cidade. Além disso, Nicola me levou a dois mercados para que eu pudesse experimentar um pouco da culinária local... o sanduiche ramón é imperdível, como também as croquetas!!! Para finalizar, uma passada por alguns dos museus da cidade, com destaque para o Museu do Prado. Bem, foi um dia agradabilíssimo, com o encontro de mais um amigo. se recomendo, claro, com certeza!
