As part of our series of routes around the city, today we want to stop in the bohemian Las Letras district. We are talking about the part of the city delimited between Carrera de San Jerónimo, Paseo del Prado, Calle de Atocha and Calle Carretas, who past is intimately linked to hundreds of authors of Spanish literature who used to live there.
Famous names such as Cervantes, Lope de Vega, Quevedo, Tirso de Molina or Góngora were all neighbours of Calle Huertas and its surrounding streets.
This area, of small and mostly pedestrianised streets, is today filled with antiques shops, bookshops, art galleries, music stores, decoration shops and even theatres and literary cafés… a temple for collectors and book lovers.
