Las Letras Neighbourhood

The area known as the Barrio de las Letras (Literary Quarter) is a neighbourhood in the centre of Madrid where some of Spain's greatest literati have lived and written over the years. Today it is an area which combines literature, a bohemian atmosphere, entertainment, shopping, and good food.

The neighbourhood is formed by narrow streets which are either pedestrianised or with restricted access to traffic, and pleasant squares such as the Plaza de Santa Ana. This is an area where it is easy to find houses in which towering literary figures of the Spanish Golden Age such as Lope de Vega, Quevedo, Góngora and Cervantes lived and wrote. This is why on the cobbles of many of the streets you'll find inscriptions and brief texts from the works of some of these writers. Another of the charms of the Las Letras quarter is its abundant offer of shops and businesses, which include everything from the most traditional establishments with centuries of history (such as cobblers, silversmiths and lute-makers) to modern avant-garde venues.


Just outside the Bario de las Letras


Casa Museum of Lopa De Vega - Lope de Vega lived in this house from 1610, until his death in 1635.The building dates from the 16th century and maintains its original appearance, thanks to painstaking restoration work. The museum recreates the atmosphere in which the author lived for more than twenty years: the old rooms, the study, prayer room, vegetable garden, furniture. 

Convent of Las Trinitarias - The convent of San Ildefonso and San Juan de Mata, better known as the Church and Convent of the Discalced Trinitarian Order, dates from the 17th-18th centuries. It has a brick facade and a portico with three doors and grated windows. It has a plaque commemorating the author of Don Quixote, who is buried here and whose daughter took vows in the convent, as did the daughter of poet and playwright Lope de Vega.
