In Madrid, like in many other big cities across Spain and all over the world, big food chains are replacing more traditional restaurants.
However, in the working-class neighbourhood of Delicias, near the famous Atocha Train Station, Bodegas Rosell is still resisting the modern times.
Opening in 1920, it has passed from generation to generation, and is now owned by Manolo and Pepe Rosell, grandsons of the first owner.
Manolo explains that they are proud to be from Madrid and therefore, they are the centenary tavern with the largest selection of wines from Spain’s capital.
His brother Pepe says that “hundreds of people come every day to taste our traditional recipes and wines.”
