The best of each district in Madrid: Barrio de Salamanca

The district of Salamanca is one of the most emblematic areas of Madrid, while at the same time it is also considered as one of those places with the highest standard of living in Europe.

Its origins can be traced back to the nineteenth century as the district is divided into six neighbourhoods (Recoletos, Castellana, Goya, Lista, Fuente del Berro and Guindalera)..the first two regions, Recoletos and Castellana, are rated as two of the best places in Madrid to live in, having many of the most luxurious and exclusive homes that can be found in the city.

However, focusing on the entire district of Salamanca, the same can be found in both modern and avant-garde as those characterised by the stately residential facades, also highlighting buildings that were erected in various architectural styles from an artistic point of view .

Emblematic places

The uniqueness of this area is highlighted by the Italian embassy, also the emblematic building such as the Ventas, located in the neighbourhood of Guindalera. Furthermore, within the Salamanca district we can find the legendary monuments of Madrid such as Puerta de Alcalá on the Paseo de La Castellana , which in turn is one of the main thoroughfares of the city.

Similarly, nestled in the district of Salamanca, such legendary sites such as the Residencia de Estudiantes, a place of paramount importance to the Spanish culture in the twentieth century are erected , as it housed artists such as Dali , Garcia Lorca and Buñuel, fostering the creative effervescence of their youth.

The most luxurious shops

One of the main hallmarks of Salamanca district is its importance when it comes to finding the most luxurious shops, including fashion and accessory stores from the most prestigious international firms. Some facilities that can be found throughout the neighbourhood, but mainly in the famous Serrano street as well as on the streets of Ortega y Gasset and Claudio Coello, who make up the so-called ‘Milla de Oro’.

Commercial business owners exercising genuine claim to buy not only in Madrid, but also throughout the country , and even beyond our borders, come on purpose to buy here , or take advantage of their visit to the city to make their referential acquisitions in this place as a luxury shopping site.

The best culinary proposals

In the same way that the Salamanca district is one of the best places in Madrid to live in and buy, it also enjoys a variety of dining suggestions. Thus, in Serrano street itself, La Castellana or Jorge Juan street, to name only three examples, we can find some of the most famous restaurants in Madrid, with years of experience behind them offering dishes that are their signature establishments and bring together tasty wines from the best wineries in Spain.

But besides the traditional restaurants, the Salamanca district attracts every conceivable culinary offerings, including those with high levels of sophistication. As this is an area in which you can enjoy many culinary options and eat in many delightful places. These restaurants serve excellent and extremely varied tapas, at prices that do not always have to be excessively high.

A wide range of places to go with children

Throughout the Salamanca district you will find places designed for the whole family, so there are, for example, many suggestive proposals to eat with children in specially equipped premises, which hold plenty of space to leave prams where the little ones will feel less constrained. Establishments that are 'kids friendly' also offer quality dishes specially designed for them.

Moreover, it is always difficult to go shopping with children, who want to venture out and have the option to do so by going to shopping centres which, by their nature, are more suited to the time they go with the whole family. These malls can be found in the luxurious 'Jardín de Serrano' and the 'ABC Serrano' area located in the former headquarters of the newspaper which gives its name to the current mall now.

In order for children to play, from running about or participating in any of the numerous activities that are always scheduled, there is also the option of heading to the district boundaries and into Retiro, a huge park that offers many advantages if it is chosen as the main site.
