Today's Chueca is the happiest, open, chic and colorful area in the city, but until a few years ago it was a crime-ridden area in the city and a poor and disintegrating neighborhood. The miracle took place here, when the proud community discovered the neighborhood, which had a winning position.
Members of the gay and lesbian community saw Chueca's enormous potential and "dressed in it." They renovated houses there, opened shops and bars, and gradually turned it into a cool, hearty and action-packed area around the clock. So, Chueca quickly became the center of the nightlife and entertainment of the city.
Today it is a bustling area of life not only at night. Along with excellent nightlife and clubs, this area of the city is full of restaurants, bars and galleries.
Pay attention to the El Mercado Fuencarral shopping center, the C / Conde Duque where interesting fashion shops are, and the local flea market, the Rastro.
