We propose you to learn more about the Lavapiés district from the urban, historical and architectural point of view. We recommend that you save some time before the aperitif by the Rastro to walk together and learn about the history of theaters, cinemas, cafés, museums or their corralas, typical buildings of houses in the authentic heart of Madrid that Traveler has declared as the coolest neighborhood of the world. Small hidden gems like the municipal printing house, rationalist industrial building of 1930 or the last in the area to have a drink like Sala Equís, the last X cinema in Madrid. From here to Cascorro and the history of how the Rastro began, combining the most authentic with the latest in vintage furniture. From there we will go to the Tabacalera where you can see the best of urban art on its facades, passing by Doctor Fourquet with its art galleries until the expansion of the Reina Sofía Museum, ending at the San Fernando Market where you can have an aperitif with a vermouth and some tapas
