, an amazing park-museum with plants and flowers from all over the world, scientifically named, orderly categorised and beautifully distributed.
Casa de Campo
, a huge area-park in the outskirts of the city with various things to do.
, THE place to go for clothes, going through Zara, Springfield, Berska, Lefties and other shops.
, a very small colourful and full of smells shop in Gran Via selling natural soaps, that look more like cheeses to me! - Half a kilo please!!
bazaar in La Latina area during Sunday mornings - you can find anything you can imagine! Be careful of your wallet and bag though...
around is actually underground... Look for the Chinese restaurant under Plaza de Espana, with very good and cheap Chinese food, which many Chinese people trust.
La Gracia de Montera
(near Metro Sevilla), as a non-expensive choice for nice food. It's usually full but service is fast.
,for a more expensive and classy dinner. Don't miss trying the
Museo del Jamon
, in various locations around the city, a cool and cheap place to taste some Spanish "jamon" and have a few beers at any time.
in Chueca, known as the gay area of Madrid, is a famous for generously providing you with very good tapas when you order beers or cider.
, a very small but cosy bar that makes incredible mojitos and other unique drinks, alcoholic or not.
If you are feeling your throat a bit soar, a large Caipirina full of slices of natural lemon is the best medicine! You'll find it in a small, traditional looking bar in Huertas area.
Palacio de Gaviria
, probably the best club you can go in Madrid, is using an old building that looks like a small palace still preserving its original decoration, having several rooms with different music and changing themes every night.
Chocolateria de San Ginés
, the best place to go to have "churros" with a hot chocolate drink, especially in the morning after a long night partying out.
