Only a few steps away from the Prado museum, this magnificent and comfortable one-bedroom apartment for rent lies in a privileged location in one of the most bohemian and cultural neighborhoods in Madrid.
The Madrid neighborhood of Las Cortes is one of the oldest and most bohemian in the capital, it is just a stone's throw from Puerta del Sol and Paseo del Prado. One could say one of the best-known areas in the city is Barrio de las Letras, named in this fashion because the area used to be a meeting point for many writers, actors and artists in the city. Nowadays, it is still a hot spot for artists who continue to make this neighborhood their home. The heart of this neighborhood is undoubtedly Huertas Street, which goes from the popular Plaza Santa Ana to the Museo Nacional del Prado, one of the most important museums in the world. On Cervantes Street, visitors can find the Casa Lope de Vega, where the most prolific writer in Spain's history lived for the last 25 years of his life. Likewise, Prado Street also houses the Madrid Cultural Center (Ateneo de Madrid), a cultural institution founded in 1895. It has an extensive activity schedule worth looking at when making plans to visit the city.
On Plaza Santa Ana, meeting point and the true heart of the city, one can find two symbolic buildings in Madrid — the Teatro Español and the Hotel Victoria, currently hotel Me, traditionally favored by famous bullfighters back in its day. Around the square, there are many bars, cafeterias and famous pubs such as La Alemana, visited by well-known writers like Jardiel, Valle Inclán and Ernest Hemingway.
On the famous Plaza del Ángel lies the famed Café Central, a jazz temple in the city and very close from San Sebastián Church. Among the church records, one can find birth, marriage and death certificates of important people such as Cervantes and Lope de Vega..
