Other interesting attractions in Madrid
It is necessary to take a break between stroll and stroll, and what can be better than one of the most traditional plans, like a good chocolate with churros!
Although this is typically a delicacy for breakfast, in the mythical CHOCOLATERÍA SAN GINÉS (Pasadizo San Ginés, no. 5), it becomes much more: an authentic experience in a bar that is over 120 years old and that is always open and you will never find empty!
Although San Ginés is the most famous, CHOCOLATERÍA VALOR, next to the Plaza de Callao, has nothing to envy, and both fight for the title of best chocolate in town.
Tip for very sweet people only: Come to both and decide which one you like the most.
EL RASTRO: This open-air market is held every Sunday in the neighborhood of La Latina and it is over 400 years old, here you can find the strangest objects and antiques.
Strolling here is a unique experience, but you can also find some antique for a cheap price or that curious object that you were looking for, so keep your eyes open!
Please be careful with your personal belongings; although Madrid is a quiet and very safe city, sometimes pickpockets take advantage of the crowds to steal valuables from unsuspecting tourists.
The best way to end a morning in the Rastro is to have some TAPAS IN LA LATINA. We will not recommend any specific bar, the best thing is to try them all, make your own route with the places that you like the most, all the bars in this neighborhood have their own charm, you will love it!
There is an original view of Madrid, only suitable for people without fear of heights: it is the CABLE CAR, linking the center of Madrid, at the height of Paseo del Pintor Rosales, with Casa de Campo, passing by Rosaleda, the Manzanares river and the Ermita de San Antonio de la Florida at about 40 meters high.
And, for the performing arts lovers, go to the GRAN VÍA STREET. This street, in the section from the Plaza de Callao to Plaza de España, is famous as the small Broadway of Madrid, since most musical and theatrical performances in Madrid are performed here, such as The Lion King or Cabbaret.

Trust us, it is worthy.
Madrid has a surprise in every corner, if you can, walk, keep on walking and walk again, you will definitely find a thousand of beautiful surprises!
