Madrid, Spain

Follow your nose

Lavapies is a neighbourhood in Madrid; its name means ‘wash feet’, probably derived from the ritual of washing feet before entering temples. It was not the smell of feet that drew us here but rather the enticing aromas of food. Once a slum, Lavapies is now known for its multicultural resident mix and its food markets. My friends and I found our way here from out of the metro just by following the delicious smells.
