An Oldie But A Goodie

Just a block from Plaza Mayor is a restaurant that claims to be the oldest in the world (and the Guinness Book of World Records agrees). Under the wood-beamed ceiling, sagging under the three-hundred-year weight, El Botín serves an exquisite array of old-fashioned Spanish cuisine: roast lamb, stewed partridge, and grilled veal are customer favorites. If you come with a group, you absolutely can’t miss Botín’s succulent suckling pig, made famous by Ernest Hemingway’s mention of it in The Sun Also Rises. The restaurant’s historic renown has led to its current state as a very touristic spot, but its still an experience.
