You walk in through a door that makes you wonder if you've found the right place, and rise to the 3rd floor in an old elevator "lift" with double doors, and wonder what you've done! Then you open the door to the floor of rooms...More

Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once
home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de
Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The

them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas
receives a fair amount of spillover from the center —
