The Tetuán district in Madrid comprises six neighbourhoods: Bellas Vistas, Castillejos, Cuatro Caminos, Almenara, Berruguete and Valdeacederas. One of its main advantages is that it allows to enjoy the quiet outskirts of Madrid while offering easy access to the centre of the city. Thanks to its great transport connections you can be in the city centre in under half an hour.
Multifaceted Tetuán is one of the few areas where you can still experience the authentic Madrid. It is full of contrasts, from original rural houses to modern skyscrapers. It is also home to the AZCA complex, the city’s beating financial and business heart.
It is also a mecca for foodies, who flock to its many restaurants, ranging from sophisticated establishments to local taverns where you can taste real Madrid cooking, without forgetting restaurants serving international cuisine and Asian markets: the ones on Calle General Margallo are said to be the best in the city. So, if you like discovering food from all over the world, this is the place for you! The Mercado de Maravillas, close to Cuatro Caminos, can compete with the city’s finest. It is fairly big and offers typical Spanish food as well as more exotic offerings.
Calle Bravo Murillo is one of the main thoroughfares in the area, packed with all kinds of shops and services. Right to the south of this street is the area known as the Little Caribbean, in the Bellas Vistas neighbourhood, brimming with Latin American shops and many locals from the Dominican Republic.
Art lovers will be thrilled to discover the many artistic outpourings in the district, including sculptures, graffiti, murals, architecture and photography studios, workshops and coworking spaces. Tetuán is a great place for anyone who appreciates art and culture.
