spent a lovely weekend in madrid at the beginning of april. i think it’s safe to say that we covered all the major attractions during our short stay, although we didn’t need to exhaust ourselves. we didn’t stress ourselves to get up early, had a leisurely breakfast, and then walked around the city during the days. we even had time for a siesta each afternoon before exploring the nightlife. the spaniards know how to live. here are the photos from our first full day of exploring.
1-3; gran via, and the view from the circulo de bellas artes.
4-6; museo del prado.
7-8; madrid architecture.
9-15; parque del retiro with the palacio de cristal (crystal palace), palacio de velázquez and monument to alfonso xii.
16; puerta de alcalá.
17; plaza de cibeles.
