The Callejones, or "callejones" in Hispanic, are a series of short, perpendicular streets in central Madrid. They are considered the "back alleys" of Madrid. When the city was in its construction stage, the Callejones were the only open spaces available because of the lack of land and the high costs of underground construction. There is a lot of history and development in the Callejones and they serve as the centers of historical neighborhoods in Madrid.If you are looking for some great deals this is the place to go. Make sure you wear some comfortable walking shoes and cash for purchases. Some stores you can bargain the price or get a better deal if you buy more than one item. Most items are non-refundable so keep that in mind.
