Lavapiés has 88 nationalities in its DNA. The five continents live together in streets full of cosmopolitan energy. The Madrid neighborhood concentrates multiple artistic, culinary and vital trends. The neighborhood combines the roots of ancient cultures with the breakthrough trends in a European capital. The search for new forms and languages coexist with the respect of the traditions. Lavapies is the other, and many others are Lavapies. Protected content ago its streets hosted Jews, Muslims, and Catholics.

After the expulsion of the first in Protected content , the old Jewish quarter harbored not only converts, but also to clandestine fleeing the bailiffs of the Inquisition, newly installed in Ministriles and La Cabeza.

Lavapies was populated of the 'Manolos' firstborn as well as 'majos´, ´chisperos´and 'chulapos': popular archetype embodied in Goya tapestries, without forgetting the gypsies walking with their mules for the pilgrimage of Meson de Paredes and Olivar. Lavapies also "castizo" and bohemian. The sand from its remote sleep falls to the sidewalk today, where Moroccan sweets alternating with "cañas" of their retro taverns, the dfl2gourmet tapas from gastro-international bars, spices from India and Bangladesh; clothing from China joins hands with African percussion instruments; the vanguards of thought and philosophy of its libraries dialogue with the underground stage proposals of its theaters, and the footprint of urban artists goes beyond the limits of its galleries and exhibition halls.

So, the Lavapiés events calendar reflects the diversity of its daily life. The Bollywood Festival, the streek basketball Streetball Champs besides the Multicultural Road of the "Tapas" are essential dates in the neighborhood.
