#4 of 12 in Neighborhoods in Madrid
Unleash your inner hipster in this creative countercultural neighborhood. Malasana was at the center of Madrid’s punkish Movida movement after Franco’s death in 1975, and today hosts some of the city’s best alternative venues for shopping and socializing. Browse the vintage shops, sip coffee in a bohemian cafe, pop into an art gallery, or dance in a lively bar. The Plaza Dos de Mayo is a great spot to sit and watch the world go by. For Malasana and beyond, use our Madrid online itinerary planner to get the most from your Madrid vacation.

  • We used a self guided walk from the Lonely Planet guide to explore this area. This was one of favourite areas in the city, great buzz, cute shops and restaurants. Would stay closer next time.  more »
  • This place is the real deal. Where the locals party like nowhere else. Bars and Clubs open till the early hours of the morning. Unbeatable streetlife that doesn't abate. Unmissable Madrid experience  more »
