A touch of glamour:
In the 1970’s movie director Carlos Saura and actress Geraldine Chaplin were our family’s neighbours as they lived several years in the building! Carlos Saura published in 1961 a renowned photography book with images of the neighbourhood’s Sunday flee market, El Rastro.
In 1982, Pedro Almodovar chose el Rastro as the setting for his second film, Labyrinth of Passion.
Finally, the famous flamenco singer and Grammy award winner Diego El Cigala was born in the neighbourhood and, as a kid, used to sing in some of the bars in the plaza and surroundings.
