Top ice cream shops in Madrid

Those who come to Madrid for a visit during the hot summer months won't be surprised to find the streets of the capital flooded with excruciating heat. Every person has their own way of fighting the heatwave, but by far the tastiest and most enjoyable way is to eat an ice cream.

The ice creams in Madrid have always had their own traditions. In times of Austrias, the snow that was brought from Guadarrama was turned into devouring sorbets. There are many ice cream parlours in the capital that introduce new and tasty flavours every year in order to compete with their rivals. For this reason, it is difficult to choose one ice cream parlour over another, although some are more famous than others.

If you want traditional gelato, we have "Los Alpes", which opened 50 years ago in Moncloa. The locale is family-owned and uses fresh, quality milk. You have lots of different flavours to choose from.

Those who prefer low-fat, organic ice cream with 100% natural ingredients must visit "Mistura" in Malasaña or Plaza Mayor. This is an environmentally-friendly ice cream parlour as it doesn't use artificial colours or preservatives.

The Zucchi family has been making ice cream in Madrid since 1947 at "Gelatería La Romana". You can find 60 types of cigars and artisanal flavours in Paseo de la Habana and San Bernardo Street. The ice creams are lactose free and made with organic milk.

If you are looking for a different type of ice cream, such as savory or surprising flavours, you must go to "Napoli", in Menéndez Pelayo. Some of the strange ingredients are asparagus, mushrooms, olive oil and even bean stew with chorizo.

In Barrio de las Letras, "Giuseppe Ricci" makes soy ice cream, with no sugar or milk. There are different options that include, savory flavours such as olives, gazpacho or blue cheese.

Also the best pastry chef in the world, Jordi Roca, offers ice creams in "Rocambolesc", where the flavour bases are prepared in Can Roca kitchens.

"Sani Sapori" opened in Lavapiés Street and offers exotic and varied flavours. Today, their specialties are baobab, soy coffee and Yogo Amarena.

There is also the fried ice creams at "Lolo" to try. You get fun and unique recipes with exotic flavours and 75% fruit in Espíritu Santo Street.

Another traditional ice cream shop situated in Puerta del Sol is "Palazzo". The traditional chocolate or rice milk flavours are delicious.

Originality can also be found in the romantic "Amorino" situated between Mayor Street and Corte Inglés de Callao. Try the ice cream in the shape of rose petals with exotic hints of passion fruit and mango. It's delicious!
