Located in a privileged spot in Calle Sal , formerly Calle Real de la Sal and named after the old salt deposit once located there. The street starts in the Plaza Mayor and leads into Calle Postas.. Old shops stand out among the modern souvenir ones in this popular street from the Benito Perez Galdos era.
In front of the butchers is one of the famous facades painted by Antonio Mingote and showing typical Madrid characters peering over false balconies. The current owners´grandfather worked in the shop as an apprentice in the 20’s. The business was already over a hundred years old and after ten years’ service the apprentice became the owner. Three generations later this family business still sells meats of all sorts, cheese and boiled or cured ham to locals and visitors to this unique spot with a view of Plaza Mayor.
