As you might already know, Madrid is the capital of Spain. There is nearly nothing you can’t do in Madrid, it has all sort of things to offer, for this reason it is one of the most touristic cities in Spain.The most common things to do are: eating chocolate con churros at San Ginés, eat at the world’s oldest restaurant Botin, have some tapas and cañas (beer), walk in the Retiro park and go to el Rastro.
Just one piece of advice, if you come during July or August make sure you bring lots of sunscreen! It gets really hot in Madrid, and you don’t want to look like a lobster in all your pictures. 😉
