Ríos Rosas is a ward (barrio) of Madrid belonging to the district of Chamberí. It takes its name from Antonio de los Ríos Rosas,[1] a 19th century politician.[2]

The ward is served by the Madrid Metro station called Rios Rosas, one of the first stations to be opened on the network.

The ward has recently filled up with cosy modern pubs and restaurants, especially in Ponzano Street.[3][4]
