Galería Canalejas is surrounded by numerous opera houses, classical theatres and new stage venues, making the Galería Canalejas Food Hall the perfect place for a gastro break while exploring the heart of this capital.

Take a look at what’s on offer!

Among the cultural venues closest to Galería Canalejas are the Teatro Reina Victoria, a space with over 100 years of history; the impressive Teatro Español, the oldest theatre in the world in terms of continuous performances; and the Cardamomo Tablao Flamenco, a must-see for enthusiasts of Spanish traditional music.

Only a short walk away can be found the Café Central, a temple to jazz; and the Teatro Calderón, which occupies one of the most beautiful corners in central Madrid on the busy Calle Atocha.

In the north-west of central Madrid, the famous Teatro de la Zarzuela promotes the best works and voices from the most authentic of Spanish genres - zarzuela. From there, visitors need not travel far to feel the vibrant energy of the famous musicals on Gran Vía, the Spanish version of Broadway.
