Neighborhoods in Madrid: Chamberí

Adjacent to the center district (Malasaña bordering to the southwest) and with Barrio Salamanca to the east, Chamberí is in a privileged location — close enough to the center to enjoy all that it has to offer, yet at enough of a distance to have a true ‘neighborhood feel’. This is just one of the factors that make this neighborhood one of the best Madrid has to offer.

Before a suburb full of gardens or workshops just outside the city walls, nowadays is a very stablished area right in the center.

Two jewells at the area:

Chamberí underground station:

The old Chamberí station is part of the first network’s line. Built in 1919 and closed during 50 years, it was reopened in 2008 after a deep restoration. In it you will find original tile advertisements and sign posts from the twenties and thirties.Chamberí station

Museo Sorolla:

A jewel at the center of the area is Museo Sorolla. At the artist’s house you will find one of the most complete collections of  this great Spanish painter. The painting collection but also the house and the garden where Sorolla worked are very interesting as well.
