Routes and strolls through Madrid
Vintage furniture, antiques, second-hand clothes, books… Whatever you’re looking for you will find it at El Rastro, Madrid’s oldest and most popular flea market.
Cosmopolitan and modern, the Chueca district is buzzing whatever the hour. The neighbourhood is ideal for shopping, dinner or enjoying the nightlife on offer.
The district that spawned the Movida Madrileña is now home to hipster barbers, alternative shops and veggie restaurants, while still preserving its classic bars.
Located on the west side of the capital, the Casa de Campo stopped functioning as a royal hunting estate to become a place of enjoyment and entertainment for Madrilenians.
La Latina, with its medieval past and maze-like streets, is the perfect neighbourhood for sampling Madrid’s long-standing tradition of going out for a vermouth.
If the traveller puts in the effort, a walk through the Barrio de las Letras could transport them, at least symbolically, back to Madrid’s Golden Age.
Just a stone’s throw from the city, you can find little towns and villages in the Sierra de Madrid, as well as natural landscapes where you can go hiking or simply enjoy the scenery.
Visitors are surprised by the Sierra de Guadarrama. Mainly by the fact that a protected area so rich in nature, biological diversity and beauty should be found so close to the capital.
Situado a menos de 1 hora de la capital, Chinchón reúne un rico patrimonio, una atmósfera castiza y excelentes restaurantes de cocina tradicional.
