Take a trip down memory lane and enjoy a retrospective shopping trip with a difference in the alternative Malasaña district where vintage, rock ‘n’ roll, vinyl, second-hand etc are the order of the day. See the most diverse and original shops in Madrid, browse through retro fashions and garments from independent designers, check out the music stores and bookstores, and markets selling a wide selection of fair trade goods...
And what better way to explore Malasaña than in the company of the district’s standout ‘personality’. Our guide is a character with a long family tree with roots in the area going back generations, someone for whom the neighbourhood runs through their veins... all the local legends are his ancestors, from Antonio Vega, Daoiz and Velarde to Manuela Malasaña herself.
Learn all about the fascinating history of this Bohemian quarter, which dates back to the Peninsular War when Spain was invaded by Napoleon’s France. Hear how it became the heartbeat of the epic 1980s Movida and get some tips on hot venues for a great night out...
