There must be 25-50 venders in this Market seller meats, fish, pastries, wine, vermouth and beer. Every single location is highly tempting. This is the place to go to a wide variety of Spanish foods.

Stumbled across this on the way to the Royal Palace but it was the most authentic Spanish experience of all! A market, rather like Spittalfield in London, that is a series of stalls selling delicacies and beverages of all kinds. From olives to cheese to...More

It is a very nice food market to eat and drink special finger foods, meals, drinks,... just too crowded and too little space to enjoy. A bit overpriced for too little space to really enjoy. Nonetheless we liked it overall.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
