The barrio of Salamanca is Madrid's most exclusive quarter. Like nowhere else in the capital, this is where stately mansions set back from the street share barrio space with big local and international designer boutiques. Salamanca’s sprinkling of fine restaurants, designer tapas bars and niche museums are also very much at home here.
