Malasaña is one of the most trendy, hip, and bustling neighborhoods in downtown Madrid. Filled with coffee shops, edgy bars, and vintage clothing boutiques, this neighborhood is the absolute best meeting spot for young adults. There are also many used clothing stores and eco-friendly cafes and shops lining the cobbles-stone streets; perfect for the environmentally-conscious shopper. The overall vibe of Malasaña is pretty simple: Take care of the earth and look great while doing it! Tourists and locals alike love the pop-up markets, book shops, Museum of Contemporary Art, and stunning works of architecture throughout the neighborhood. Malasaña is named after Manuela Malasana, a 15 year old girl who was executed by the French in 1908 in Plaza del Dos de Mayo for taking part in the uprising against Napoleon's occupation of Spain. This was during Spain's struggle for independence. Malasaña is also the birthplace of Madrid's underground art movement in the 1980's. The famous "movida" movement revolutionized new art and culture in Spain. If any "barrio" symbolizes revolution, Malasaña is the one. Have a perfect cocktail in '1862 Dry Bar' or enjoy a bagel and shop used books at 'J&J Books and Coffee'. With plenty of bars and nightlife, Malasaña is the perfect place to end your weekend in Madrid. Photo by Sergio Rodriguez from Unsplash
