Having just come from Barcelona and visiting La Boqueria, this was a different experience. First of all this is primarily a food market - you won’t find the variety of market stalls selling fruits, candies, nuts, fish stalls etc. However, if you are looking for...More

We went there expecting a huge market where restaurants got their daily deliveries. What we got when we finally arrived, was disappointing - it's a tourist trap. You can get a small cone of boquerones for twenty (!) euros, which is about ten times as...More

Loved this place - a feast for the eyes and tastebuds. Absolutely packed and you have to fight to get a seat but it’s a good natured crowd with a buzzy vibe. The fish tapas for 1 Euro each were just so delicious. Fantastic food...More

This is a wonderful market to visit and have food and beverages. They have a few types of ham, salami, paella and other fantastic options. Try the Clarita con Limón which is beer with lemon. Your will love the experience. Beware it gets very crowded.

Yes, many vendors are pricey, specially those calamari cones. No, there are not many seats available. But Mercado Sam Miguel is a tourist spot you have to visit when you're in Madrid, not necessarily for eating meals. Half way into the Mercado in the middle...More

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
