"La ciudad donde se quedó mi corazón" Madrid by Malecka

Madrid Travel Guide: 5,377 reviews and 10,936 photos

I can assure you...

... that YOU WOULD have a fantastic time in this magnificant city... there is so much to be seen, to be experienced, to be tasted...

I've been there four times now and it is undoubtedly one of my very favorite places.

I've done the walking-all-day-long (till your legs can't take it anymore) to see as much as possible, I've had the churros y chocolate at San Gines, enjoyed a very lazy coffee in the sun at Plaza Mayor (too full of tourists, I have to admit, but lovely nonetheless), I've gone for a run in Retiro, stayed up till 5:00 AM on a Monday night (because in Madrid you can actually do this), I've spent seven hours in Prado, had wine in a vinoteca at the charming plaza Santa Ana and listened to jazz in La Latina.
You can't go wrong with Madrid.

The street of ALCALA, on a wednesday morning!

... Saturday afternoon... Sunny, warmish day in Madrid. The park is full of... everyone and everything. Cosy atmosphere and... a place to chill at.

Pros and Cons

    Great tips on Madrid. Every bit of information from somoen who knows the city is helpful. Yours appeal to a traveller who doesn't want a "bus tour" of 3 minutes at each site. thanks

    I had the great fortune to live close to Madrid for three exciting years; your photos and comments were most enjoyable to me. AND - next time in Madrid, try many restaurants! There are many outstanding places to eat.
