North of the popular party district of Malasaña, Chamberí is worth visiting for its 19th and 20th century architecture, with neo-classical and high modernist design influences. The neighborhood also boasts the charming and under-visited Sorolla Museum, the Andalucian house and gallery belonging to Spain's greatest impressionist painter. At relaxed bars with outdoor terraces, you can sample authentic Spanish cuisine away from the manic touristic chaos of downtown. Enjoy a leisurely stroll here during hot summers under the shade of tall buildings or leafy trees, and cool down at local fountains.
