A place with many opportunities

It is without a doubt one of the places with the most opportunities you can find in Madrid. It is full of terraces, and good pubs for those who like beer. You can find it in the Huertas area, very close to Puerta del Sol, very centric.

It has an interesting cultural element: it is dominated by the statue of the poet Fedrico García Lorca and, in front of him, there is the Teatro Español of neoclassical style. Talking about genius, in the back of the square you can view the statue of Calderón de la Barca, and just behind there is the Victoria Hotel, of art deco style.

It has something special because it is an area with a lot of people, both during the day with the terraces as at night with the pubs and bars. There will always people you can at least chat with.

The square that never sleeps

Rest assured: if you come to Madrid, you have to visit this place. No matter if you come to taste the beers found in Naturbier, for the great atmosphere of its terraces, if you love the theater or because it’s practically the nerve center of Las Letras neighborhood, your destiny is found in this emblematic square of Madrid.

I love it, and I always come here to enjoy the transformations that take place along the day. On weekends it doesn’t even sleep. The big concentration of bars, pubs and discos that surround it fill it with people and their coming and going sounds like never ending human drip.

It represents the essence of this neighborhood, with its terraces, tapas and animation. But, overall, because in one of its sides can be found the Teatro Español (Spanish Theater), which exists since the 17th Century. To remind us of the importance of literature, two statues share the same space: on one side is Federico García Lorca and, on the other side, the great Calderón: modernity and Golden Age.

The ME Reina Victoria Hotel stands out for its architectural beauty. I think it’s one the most beautiful in Madrid. On another side you will find the ever changing Villa Rosa, which has been everything: from a grocery shop to the current flamenco bar. One of Almodóvar’s films was shot around here.

I repeat: if you come to Madrid, you must visit this place, to eat some tapas, drink some good beers, take a walk, stay in one of the hotels or see a good play in the theater. It is most definitely the essence of the neighborhood.

We all go to this spot

I have to admit it: it is full of tourists. But how can you avoid this if this is one of the loveliest area for tapas and drinks in the Old Madrid. Situated in the heart of the Barrio de las Letras (Letters Neigtborhood), between the Hotel Me Reina Cristina and the Teatro Español, a stone's throw from Huertas street, Matute square and Café Central, Santa Ana square is the spot we all end up at after walking lost in the small streets of the Barrio de las Letras or Sol.

The place is full of bars, taverns and tapas bars. You can choose from any of them, they are all amazing, especially when the weather is good and you manage to get a table on one of their terrace.
