"Buskers" Madrid Favorite Tip by jamiesno

  Madrid Busker
by jamiesno

Favorite thing: There are generally plenty of buskers on the streets in Madrid and I often mistaken for statues until they jumped at me, I quickly learnt from that point onward. Again the buskers add to the overall experience while roaming the streets of Madrid.

Here in this picture you can see how they would engage pedestrians and their costumes could get very elaborate.

I enjoy any city where walking is enjoyable and not just a task to get somewhere. I read a quote one time to that affect, the trail is the thing, not the end of it :-).

I give two thumbs up to the atmosphere exploring Madrid.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
