The Literary Quarter was once home to Spain’s illustrious writers of the 16th and 17th centuries. Today, the charming pedestrian district is a popular area teeming with interesting bars, cafes, pastry shops and the best old taverns.
According to tradition, Madrid is the place to taste Tapas, drink wine or small beers accompainied by calamari sandwich, mojama with toasted almond, olives and wine indeed ! These traditional establishments have been in operation for more than 100 years.
