Café Gijón

Grand Cafe of Spanish history in Madrid

Café Gijón opened in 1888 and, for over 100 years has been associated with artists, actors and writers, and others artistic and political types. Café de Gijón is a place where people can meet for informal chats about everything. It has hardly changed over the years and is a great place to meet with friends and watch people on the busy Paseo de Recoletos. The Cafe has an interesting plaque above a cabinet, which reads: "from here Alfonso, match seller and anarquist, sold tobacco and saw the world pass by." It is dedicated to him by his friends at the Café.
