Madrid's neighborhood, Malasaña, is packed with history, eclectic restaurants, bars, hipsters and life. Its narrow streets are never empty at any hour. Graffiti art at its finest can be found here, and the once epicenter of the movida Madrileña Malasaña is a barrio that is not to be missed when visiting the Spanish capital. Even if you don’t listen to Nirvana or wear acid washed jeans, the multitude of options is enough to keep you busy for an afternoon or a lifetime. This route includes the essentials to make you feel like a neighborhood local. I encourage you to take the time to sit on an empty bench along the route and take in the authentic Madrid experience.
