Lavapiés is the oldest neighborhood in Madrid, and its origins go back to the time of the Jews. This area was inhabited only by Jews, they gathered together in the Synagogue (the actual San Lorenzo Church), and the neighborhood takes its name from the popular tradition they had at that time; they used to wash their limbs at the fountain in the main square, as a ritual of purification before starting their prayers. When the Jews were expelled in the 15th century, some of them converted to Catholicism in order to survive in the neighborhood. That’s why the oldest streets now have have names that exalt the Catholic religion.
Today, this neighborhood is inhabited by people from all over the world and we can clearly see different cultures coexisting.
Lavapiés is located in the centre of Madrid, right in Embajadores district, the biggest one in central Madrid. It’s close to some of the most interesting spots of the city, and along with its multicultural atmosphere, it’s one of the reasons why young students and workers are attracted to this area.
