    Whilst we didn’t have time to do the tour of the Royal Palace as it was late in the afternoon, the outside on its own was worth the visit. The light and gardens begins with the sinking sun, just spectacular.

    All sorts of shopping, good tapas and eating options are available. Well-connected and one of the best areas of the City.

    The Markets are great and certainly worth a visit. They do get very busy though and it’s difficult trying to find somewhere to sit. However, the food looked amazing and we tried multiple tapas, but they looked better than they tasted. Nothing was bad, it was just style over substance. The food is expensive by comparison too.

    The dome is one the finest in Europe. The space glimmers with light, color, and ambiance. It is a space work visiting and one you will be glad you visited. If you come for mass in the morning, it will save you from having to pay the $5 Euro free.

    A neighborhood with a lot of history, today it has a wide variety of restaurants and bars to go at night or during the day. The gastronomic proposal is very attractive

    Main Cathedral in Madrid in front of the Royal Palace. It is dedicated to the Virgin of Almudena, and its construction began in 1879, completed and consecrated by Pope John Paul II in 1993.
    Among the Spanish noble members sepulchered there: Mercedes of Orleans (Queen of Spain) and Prince Ferdinand of Bavaria.

    The Plaza de Oriente is a square located across from the Royal Palace. It is rectangular in shape and monumental in character and it was designed by Narciso Pascual y Colomer. The square was opened in 1844. In the same year the equestrian statue of Felipe IV was erected. The gardens were planned by Jose Bonaparte, who wanted the gardens to highlight the Palace and the Royal Theater. One of the most beautiful squares in Madrid.

    It was my first time seeing a show there and I've done loads of research beforehand, to make sure I got a good seat. Eventually I decided on row 19, seats 13/11 and was not disappointed. Great view and acoustics! Having been there now, I think almost every seat could be a good choice though as the theatre is quite small and intimate. The seats are very narrow and close to the next person so there's not a lot of space (especially leg space), they're also not the most comfortable (but good for the length of the show).
    The theatre itself is very beautiful, well preserved and the staff was also very friendly. I'd definitely come back again for a good show!

    As for the Lion King: I absolutely loved it! The actors, their voices and especially the costumes were amazing. Absolutely worth seeing!

    This street was one of the highlights of our trip to Madrid. It might only be a relatively short street but it’s one of the best. It’s a warren of tapas bars, with around 50 or so in the one small area. We started at one end and made our way along them, picking and choosing in a random sort of way. The street follows the curves of the original 12th-century city wall and in some of the bars like Posada del Dragon, you can still see remains of some of the wall. 
    Our top three places were:
    1. La Concha
    2. Pousada del Dragon
    3. Casa Luca
    La Concha was our absolute favourite. A tiny place full of character that served an amazing vermouth cocktail and complimentary tapas. They make their own vermouth which they sell at €12 a bottle. We left with our backpack clinking because we'd bought two.

    Small but good gardens located to the side of the Royal Palace enroute to the Plaza de Espana and the Temple of Debod. There are some small fountains and some nice paths. Well worth a 30 minute visit.

    To celebrate our wedding anniversary we attended a performance of Aida at the Teatro Real. This was the first time we had visited, we booked seats towards the front of "Paraiso" (the amphitheatre) online so wasn't sure what to expect. The seats were in fact very good, great sight lines and on an aisle which we prefer. The acoustics are superb and the production fabulous, great choreography as well as singings and interesting use of holograms. We dressed up for the occasion and many of the Spanish audience did so as well. Only small thing, we couldn't work out where and how to order interval drinks so that particular pleasure was missed but no matter.

    Started a Tapas tour in the Plaza de Villa, which is located only a short stroll from the Puerta de Sol & Mercado de San Miguel. Its a beautiful Plaza with wonderful gardens.

    I’ve seen this in social media and a friend had visited prior and I just loved the cookies. So in my visit to Madrid I had to go. Going there is fairly easy (you can just Google it) and once there you will find people coming in and out so it’s fairly straight forward. The cookies are super good, don’t miss the chance to go.

    Crypt just beside of Almudena Cathedral. Spanish noble family members are sepulchered inside. The entrance is free and in the lateral road just behind the Almudena Cathedral entrance.
