Forget Buckingham Palace guards and Eiffel Tower selfies. Plaza de Oriente throws you into the real Madrid. Imagine sunlight bouncing off its royal bling (the Royal Palace, I mean), the air buzzing with locals chatting while opera melodies sneak out of the Teatro Real. This ain't just a square, it's a living postcard where history whispers secrets and everyday life unfolds like a telenovela (minus the overacting, hopefully).
I was born in Madrid and I lived here for over 20 years. I also had the chance of travel a lot for business raisons. The purpose of this blog is to help you make the best out of your visit to Madrid and to give you the rights places and the tips that I believe are the best for you. Se lets get into our subjet: Madrid, What to do, where to go?
Madrid Las Ventas bullring is the biggest in Spain and the 3rd in the world (after Mexico and Venezuela). I was pretty impress the first time I visited it, I didn’t thought it was that big. Even if you don’t like bullfighting, the building is wonderful and the arenas worth to been seen.
