When I first arrived to Madrid I came to visit a friend. I came from a sunny day in Malaga , and landed into a crazy rainy weather.
When my friend came, we drove into the city, we hardly could see anything cause of the rain. We were hungry, we steped out of the car, we got all wet, and then I lift my head and took a look around.
That was the moment I felt in love with Madrid, and I was thinking to myself "That city is Rock"!
I wasn't wrong.
Even though I was living in Malaga most of my years in Spain, Madrid was and it is still my favorite city.
I can walk the Gran Via street as many times as its takes, and the Salamanca quater is also one of my favorit part in town.
First time in Madrid, I just took my time to learn it and get use to it, and as time passed I started explorer it part by part.
Sometimes I use to take a train to Madrid, around 4 hours from Malaga, and spend the whole day there. I was leaving Malaga first thing in the morning, and take the last train leaving town.
While staying in Madrid for more then one day, I used to take one of the hotels around the Gran Via street ,and then take one day to visit the amazing museums of Madrid, another day to visit the different parts of the city, the gardens, the fashion stores, and the local food and culture.
For who ever travel to Madrid my only advise, since there are lots of things to do, is to take any day and dedicated it to something else. Make sure not to give up on just walking around the main streets and Las Plazas ,take a sit in many of the Cafe's around the city, watch the locals at the Tapas Bar and try different kind of food that you don't usually eat back home.
The Museum presents the following collections: The Spanish Collection, The Flemish Collection,The Italian... more travel advice
