La Latina & Lavapiés Attractions in Madrid

While La Latina is better known as a hip neighborhood to find some tapas or grab a drink and Lavapiés as a multicultural neighborhood for some international cuisine, both of them are historic Madrid neighborhoods with interesting places to see. Just take a look at the list we've put together of the top 10 things to do in La Latina and Lavapiés. Our top pick is the Filmoteca, also known as the Cine Doré. This attractive Art Deco movie theater screens classic and international films for bargain prices. The theater's café is also a nice place to grab a drink while the film bookshop stocks interesting titles in English and Spanish. The 16th century San Isidro Church, popularly known as La Colegiata, is one of the city's most important churches. The remains of the city's patron saint, San Isidro, are at rest in the elaborate Barroque-style church, which served as the city's cathedral before the inauguration of Almudena Cathedral in the 1990s. San Isidro Museum, housed in a 16th century palace, is an interesting free museum that traces the history and curiosities of Madrid's past. Be sure to take a look at the Renaissance-style interior patio and the gardens. The Plaza de la Cebada is an historic square that today is a popular place for young people to hang out and for the trendy bars, cafes, and restaurants that can be found surrounding it.
