Madrid’s in Love

Talking about Madrid and not mentioning bullfighting and the Plaza se Torres which is the largest bullring in Spain, or watching and commenting on Madrid’s football club, Real Madrid, could be considered a slap in the face to the merengues who love them.

Visiting Madrid is like walking back in time with modern eyes and watching a city grow in the beauty of its own culture and heritage. Madrid is an old city that has a young heart and the eyes and ears of a new generation of Castilians, who enjoy life twenty-four hours a day.
