  • This is a square near the Church of San Andres. The last time I visited in February, it was lively because it was evening, but when I visited it on the morning of June, it was a quiet square. The atmosphere changes a lot depending on the time of day you visit!

  • Here we are in the center of the barrio de La Moreria, which together with the barrio El Rastro forms the largest neighborhood known as La Latina. Once the wagons from Madrid to the south, towards Toledo, stopped here, so the square bears the name "de Los Carros"; today it is the reference point for the inhabitants of the neighborhood. It is a quiet pedestrian square, a kind of terrace (as it is elevated from the underlying carrera de San Francisco), partly tree-lined, with a fountain in the center and with the opposite side to the carrera de San Francisco occupied by the church of San Adrés, with its bulky dome. There are no premises on this "terrace", but just do a few meters on both sides to find them. The square forms a whole in the south with the underlying plaza de Puerta de Moros (which is the continuation of Carrera San Francisco) which then flows into the great plaza de la Cebada (with the eponymous market), while in the north-east it connects seamlessly with plaza San Andrés; and the church of San Andrés separates it from the plaza de La Paja, while the palace that occupies the eastern side separates it from the plaza of the Himilladero: 6 squares in the space of a few meters; that's why we're in the heart of the barrio!
