Puerta del Angel
Puerta del Angel is a small barrio located within the Latina district. It is located on the western side of the Manzanares river with the Calle Segovia being the typical entry point. Bordering the Sabatini Gardens and the Casa de campo to the north, it is located along the southern side of the Paseo de Extremadura. A working class neighborhood with excellent local restaurants, bars and cafes, it provides a nice counter to the more expensive and crowded central part of Madrid across the river.
New bike and walking paths along the river combined with the redevelopment of the old Atletico Madrid stadium (Vicente de Calderon) will be sure to make the gentrification of this typical barrio interesting to watch and experience.
