Must dos in Madrid

Here are some of the things that one must do in Madrid, especially if you have only 2 to 3 days:

  • Visit the Plaza Mayor and some of the other major Plazas, get a portrait or caricature sketch!
  • Shop at the Salamanca Street (if you are looking high street fashion and haute couture)
  • Visit the Plaza De Toros De Las Ventas - where the bull fighting takes place
  • Watch a flamenco show - we went to Cafe De Chinitas and it was quite an experience - http://www.chinitas.com/inicio?lang=en - It's one of the best shows in the region!
  • La Puerta Del Sol - the areas around Sol is known for shopping, nightlife and restaurants

Lots & lots of artists! caricaturists, illustrators, painters etc... 

Human Statues! You'll find them everyone...

And that's me with a flamenco dancer - it was early morning and we both seemed somewhat high with the troop's (which included her) performance!

This is Sol and here is another artist, I wondered how long could she stay for?

Front view

One can hear music everywhere in Sol, there are so many musicians in every corner and not just solo performers, 4 to 5 piece bands even! People just need an excuse to dance I guess!

And that's me again, in Sol, in a flamenco costume! Ola!
