Tetuan is a unique district of Madrid and one of the most multicultural areas of the city. The area takes its name from Tetouan, Morocco, a former Spanish protectorate. All around Tetuan one can see evidence of Moroccan influence, especially in the Islamic religion that is prevalent in the area. Tetuan is known for its old houses that attract young, nostalgic Madridians looking for cheap rent, yet the district also boasts several important modern skyscrapers, including the Puerta de Europa towers, whose slanted architecture is symbolic of Madrid. Tetuan is a quirky and lively barrio that has recently gentrified, making it a delight to explore.
- Take a trip to the top of Picasso Tower where you can sip wine in a café and enjoy panoramic views of Madrid.
- See one of the centres of Islamic culture in Madrid at the Central Mosque. Located in Tetuan, the area around the mosque highlights the district’s multicultural heritage.
- Get a taste of Ireland whilst in Madrid at the Irish Rover, an authentic Irish pub that serves great frosty pints of beer that compliment the live Celtic music enlivening the atmosphere.
Tetuan is a residential barrio, so the narrow streets can be easily explored on foot. Whilst Madrid’s Metro has a stop at Tetuan, there are also several bus routes to and from the city centre, located just three kilometres away. Although Tetuan has enjoyed recent renovation, there are still reports of crime, so walking alone late at night is not recommended. Luckily, Madrid is well-serviced by taxis, which will get you to your destination at a reasonable price. If you’re travelling by air, you can hop on Madrid’s subway, which will take you from the airport to Tetuan’s Metro station.
