Mercado San Miguel


Mercado San Miguel

Plaza San Miguel, Madrid

To know any place, you must first know its food and be around its people. Check both of those to-do’s off your family’s list at this massive city center marketplace, home to tapas, fish, dry goods and just about everything you and your kids could want to eat, see and smell (and maybe something you don’t!). Plus, you’ll be among locals, moving at their pace, and living the life not as a tourist but as an immersive visitor to a new, foreign place.


10 a.m. to midnight, Sunday to Wednesday; 10 a.m. to 2 a.m., Thursday to Saturday
