Deciding where to eat is the most difficult choice at Mercado San Miguel. This gourmet tapas market houses 33 vendors of olives, cheeses, hams, and prepared tapas. Considered a monument of cultural interest, the Mercado de San Miguel is the only steel structure market that survived in Madrid.

It is located in the plaza of San Miguel, facing the Plaza del Conde de Miranda and it was completed in 1916, under the direction of Alfonso Dubé y Díez. The market as it is today only opened in 2003, after a rocky history and including shutting down its activity after the Civil War in 1936.

Initially, the space where it was built was occupied by a church, which was then destroyed by a fire and later transformed into a public square and consequently into an open-air market. With an average of 60.000 visits per week, this is a busy place, but it’s always possible to find a spot at the counters for a delicious tapa, besides the multiple stands with fruits and vegetables.
