This is a neighbourhood that belongs to the district of Chamberí. It is limited by the streets of Bravo Murillo and San Bernardo, José Abascal, Santa Engracia and Carranza. The neighbourhood’s heart is Plaza de Olavide. This is the only plaza in the neighbourhood, known for its big fountain in the centre. This is the ideal place to eat an ice-cream on sunny days. And for the cloudy days, the neighbourhood has a movie theatre. The neighbourhood still preserves the Madrid traditions with local markets, where you can enjoy tapas with friends. The area has good transportation links as it connects with the lines 1, 2, 4, 5, 7 and 10 of the metro grid.
