Travel Spain. The best museums, palaces and churches in Madrid
Madrid, the capital of Spain, is hot in summer, but it is oh so very cool to visit. If you haven’t been yet, please plan to go soon. It is really worth a trip, and it is so very different from Barcelona in Catalonia. It obviously is different, since it is in a very different part of the country. The actress Penelope Cruz and Enrique Iglesias the Spanish singer and songwriter were born in Madrid. How can one not love a city with romantic-sounding street names, like for example Costanilla de Los Ángeles?
With a size of 605.8 km² Madrid is huge, but still, you can walk everywhere, as a matter of fact you wouldn’t need to use public transport at all. I’m a big fan of looking at towns by foot, which is when I attain the most unexpected finds. Start walking and you will discover Madrid slowly. Spend as much time as you like at the places you love. Go with the flow and walk for hours and hours, and don’t forget to eat, drink coffee and take photos. I spent two weeks in Madrid and here I show you the very best museums, palaces and churches I visited.
