Next to the Botanic Gardens, connecting Glorieta de Carlos V roundabout with El Retiro park, we find this pedestrian walkway known as 'Cuesta de Moyano' (Moyano’s Hill), lined with the olden-day bookseller’s stalls.
This permanent fair, open every day of the week, originated in 1925 with a line of wooden stalls of about 15 square metres in size, without light or heating in their day, which were replaced over the years by other more comfortable ones, although similar in appearance to the originals.
Over the past few years, Calle de Claudio Moyano has undergone remodelling, which included making it a pedestrian area and the creation of a cycling track, which makes it even nicer to walk around the area. A statue of an illustrious Spanish writer, Pío Baroja, crowns the hill.
