Madrid's Triball District
A triangle of cool in central Madrid, where up-and-coming designers meet performance art meet United Nations dining.
Madrid's "it" neighbourhood for funkier fashions and more.
Dubbed the Soho of Madrid, this section of the Maravillas district near the Gran Vía has for several years now been the capital's "it" destination for cool, original shopping. Triangular in shape (hence the name Triball, from Triángulo de Ballesta, one of its streets), it includes other streets such as Valverde, Desengaño, Corredera Baja de San Pablo and Barco, as well as Madre Soledad Torres Acosta Square. Scattered amid old-time shops, eateries, and landmarks like the Lara Theatre and the churches of San Martín and San Ildefonso, you'll find boutiques featuring funky fashions and talented up-and-coming designers. Triball is more than fashion, too; here you'll find no shortage of gyms and hairdressers as well as cultural spots and eateries (Mediterranean, Mexican, Ecuadorian, Argentine, Lebanese, etc.). There are even places where you can, say, buy a pair of jeans, sip a pint and take in a short theatre performance.
