About Moncloa

Moncloa neighborhood owes its name to the Counts of Moncloa, who lived in the old Palace of Moncloa. This palace was destroyed during the Civil War, and the one we can see today was built copying the style of the old one, but much smaller. 

 

Today, this area is a residential neighborhood mixed with a commercial and a vibrant atmosphere, where a lot of families, but especially students, choose to live.

Cultural Activities

  • Sightseeing: Moncloa has a lot of places worth visiting that will make you learn about Madrid and enjoy your time in here. Some of them are the Debod Temple, Plaza de España, the Museum of the Americas and Museo del Traje. Of course, we can’t forget about Casa de Campo, a huge green space where you can do multiple things. You can enjoy a charming walk on summer, a visit to Madrid’s amusement park (worth spending the whole day), visit the Zoo Aquarium, or rent a rowing boat in the lake. As you can see, there’s many different things to discover and plans to enjoy your time with your friends. If you’re visiting Casa de Campo for the first time you can take a guided tour. 
  • De Madrid al cielo: you will hear the locals say this expression a lot, it means “From Madrid to heaven”. We recommend you some places to admire the beautiful skyline from different  points of view. Go to the Teleférico (a cable car) and take a ride to see the views of the river and some of the monuments of the city. You can also go to Faro de Moncloa, rise to the top and let the views impress you! Last but not least, the rooftop in Hotel Exe, perfect to enjoy some drinks and watch the sunset. 
  • Shopping: Moncloa is quite a residential neighborhood, but it also has some commercial areas where you can find anything you are looking for. We’re talking about Princesa Street, which begins in Plaza de España and goes all the way to Moncloa square. It’s smaller than Gran Vía, but it’s full of shops of every type.

Nightlife in Madrid

A lot of students and young people live in Moncloa, so you can imagine that there’s always a lively atmosphere, including at night. This area is ideal to have some drinks after dinner, in one of the many bars you can find along Princesa Street and Plaza de España. 

To continue the night, we recommend you to choose from all the variety of clubs with commercial and latin music in here, such as Cats, LaSal, Copérnico, Gotham… A local you can’t miss is Chapandaz, where you will be able to try the panther milk, their most famous drink. If you like other type of music, like rock or metal, Bajos de Argüelles is your place! An area full of bars and pubs where you can try any type of drink and shot in a very alternative atmosphere.

Here, fun is guaranteed for everyone; for those who want to hang out for a while or for those who want to give it all on the dance floor.
