Begin your tour directly east of the ancient heart of Madrid in the literary neighborhood, the Barrio de las Letras. It's here where some of the greatest writers, poets, and playwrights in history lived. The memorable quotes lining the streets make it one of the cultural highlights of the city by day, and the busy bars and cafés make it a party hotspot by night.
As you walk through the area, discover one of Ernest Hemingway's favorite bars, along with his passion for bullfighting. Then visit the Cervantes House, where one of the world's greatest novels, Don Quixote, was written.
Next, walk down Calle de Alcalá and the Paseo del Prado, where you'll find iconic buildings that form an incredible skyline of bold designs, vibrant colors, and monumental grandeur.
