Things to do Chueca y Malasaña Free Walking Tour

Walking next to some of its most symbolic places is the best way to understand where, how and why that cultural phenomenon of the 80s, known as La Movida Madrileña, emerged. The young people of that time faced an uncertain future living frantically in the present between the transgression, the Uncover and the Movida. Our meeting point will be the Plaza de la Luna, next to the door of the San Martin de Tours Church, from there we will stroll towards the Malasaña neighborhood, still an icon of the Movida Madrileña and the urban tribes of the time. Today we can still find some places that were the musical temples of the time, such as the Sala Maravilla, El Penta or El Tupperware. We will reach the heart of Malasaña, the Plaza del Dos de Mayo, but first we will show you some small wonders of Madrid, such as the church of San Antonio de los Alemanes with its baroque architecture, the Lara Theater and, going up Pez street, the Alfil Theater. Did you know that it was founded in 1948 as a morning cinema? It was known as the Pez cinema. We will continue our journey towards the Plaza de Chueca. On our walk we will enjoy and learn about the buildings of interest that we will see, such as the Museum of History of Madrid, the San Ildefonso Market, the Church of San Antón or the Convent of Las Recogidas. If Malasaña was the epicenter of the Movida, Chueca is the epicenter of the LGTB movement. This neighborhood has become one of the most visited areas of Madrid with a huge activity between shops, bars and cultural offer. Its square is always full of neighbors and tourists who like to enjoy its terraces. Chueca is undoubtedly the trendy neighborhood. We will finish our route contemplating the House of the Seven Chimneys that holds an old legend from the 16th century. Do you want us to tell you about it? Join us on this visit, we will surely surprise you!
