It is always interesting to walk and get lost in Madrid, knowing its streets as well as its squares always populated with people

A small and nice square near the city center, where you can sit and have a cup of coffee, read your magazine and see people going up and down.

Tapas? Pintxos? Bocadillos? Sangria? Come to Plaza de Santa Anna for the greatest selection of all of these. With restaurants galore as well as lots of people watching, this is the place to be.

Plaza Santa Ana is a popular place for locals as well as for tourists. There are a few bars and especially in the warm months it"s lovely to sit outside and have a drink and some tapas.

Staying in Huertas

Neighbourhood Profile
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighbourhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighbourhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
