For those of you that do not know (I certainly did not) Madrid is split up into "Barrios"or neighborhoods. You do most of your errands and shopping within your own neighborhood. (I am sure it is the same for many big cities, this is however the first big city I have ever lived in.)
This is a very brief photo tour of a small part of Barrio de Los Austrias, which is he neighborhood around the "La Latina" Metro stop. An awesome friend of mine set up a photo scavenger hunt for me, and it has been helping me get out and see parts of the city that I might not have seen otherwise for years. This neighborhood was very charming. A lot of Madrid's building are just not that old. This neighborhood was not only very photogenic, but had a graceful antique air about it.
Madrid is a deceptively hilly city. Most of the time you really do not notice. This neighborhood is an exception.
