## Neighborhood description
Lavapiés: While Embajadores may be its official name, it has become more common for Madrid locals to refer to this area as Lavapiés. While originally the city’s old judería, today it is a labyrinth of narrow streets, faded façades and a seamless blend of cultures for both immigrants and Spaniards alike. With a revival of the area in the 1980s among the young and artistic, Lavapies now has plenty of cultural offerings as well as an abundance of places to enjoy a caña or ethnic food. At the edge of the neighborhood is the Reina Sofía and the Teatro Valle-Inclán.
Centro: The geographical center of Madrid and Spain is the Puerta del Sol and here you’ll find an endless amount of activity all day and night. The square itself serves as the meeting point for groups of friends and the majority of touristic sites such as the Plaza Mayor, Palacio Real, Mercado de San Miguel, and the Catedral de la Almudena can be found in close proximity. Other areas of note in the Centro district are Huertas, also known as Barrio de las Letras (the city’s literary quarter) due to its distinction as being the home of many of Spain’s Siglo de Oro authors including Cervantes, Lope de Vega, and Quevedo (with streets being named after them). Two emblematic places are the Plaza de Santa Ana and Calle Huertas, with plenty of bars to lure you in. For those wanting to be in the heart of all the action, this is the place for you.
