Discover all the charms of Madrid's Malasaña district

Today, Malasaña can be defined as one of the most bohemian and modern districts in Madrid as well as a benchmark for underground culture and retro fashion. This neighbourhood, which is not very large in size, is nestled between Gran Vía and Fuencarral, Carranza and San Bernardo streets. It has also recently undergone a thorough renovation. If you're looking for something trendy, this is definitely the place to find it. 

Malasaña is named after Manuela Malasaña, a 19th century teenager who was killed by the French following her uprising against Napoleon's army in May 2nd, 1808. In the centre of the neighborhood, Plaza del Dos de Mayo pays tribute to all those who fought for the country, with the statue of captains Daoíz and Velarde next to an ancient arch.

Later, in the twentieth century, this district's fame expanded even further as it became the undisputed musical and cultural centre. Thousands of visitors come to this area every weekend and party all night.

The best thing about this district is that it's home to some of the most interesting museums, including Romanticismo Museum, located in the former palace of San Mateo Street. This museum exhibits many items that belonged to the romantic writer Mariano José de Larra. Fuencarral street is home to another cultural landmark such as Fundación Telefónica, which is dedicated to exhibitions that show the history of telecommunications.

From the monumental point of view, churches like San Martín de Tours, from the eighteenth century, the convent of Don Juan de Alarcón, where Mariana de Jesús and San Antonio de los Alemanes are buried, should not be missed. 

Today, Malasaña is a lively district full of bars and cafes with outdoor terraces and fashionable shops, with works of young designers and a very unique atmosphere. Its vitality is such that almost every week a new restaurant or gastrobar opens its doors to the public. 

The renovation of the residential neighbourhood has increased interest in the area, especially among young entrepreneurs and various artists. It is no wonder so many people want to own a home or rent one in this area.
